This dark comedy follows Dot, a 16 year-old girl who suffers from severe OCD and compulsively kills anyone she sees making a mess. But what is to be done when she accidentally gets a single dot of her victim's blood on her own shirt?
Things become even more convoluted for Dot when a local boy, Theo, begins to push his way into her life. Dot struggles with her inability to keep anyone close and her undiscovered need for companionship.
It’s hard for original stories to surface these days. We have been relying on independent films to bring us those different and unique stories. The only way we can continue to receive those new ideas is to fund the filmmakers that have them.
We all go to school and we all have jobs, yet, we all find the time to execute our passion and do what we love. Unfortunately, we don’t have the money required to tell our stories to their fullest potential. We need YOU to be a part of something bigger and to help us make something we can all be proud of.
We have already invested a lot of our own money into the project. But we reached a point where we cannot finish the film until we get some help! The absolute last thing we want is for our hard work and money that we have already spent to go to waste. We all strongly believe in this film and are confident in its success.

A Collaborative Process
This will be the second project this year that David and I have collaborated on. The first was a short that I wrote and directed titled, “Mother’s Day” which was also shot by David. The teaser can be found below:
We are also very fortunate to be working with a very talented cast. Point Park University graduate, Julia Warner, will be portraying Dot while Carnegie Mellon Universities', Ben Edelman, will be playing Theo.
We have just concluded our first shoot weekend. Everything went smooth and we are excited to keep going. Spirits are high as we truck through this very ambitious project!
