My Short Films

I can't really babble about movies without having made a few of my own, right? So here are a some examples of what was going through my head at the time these were created. Expect additions as new projects are completed, and old ones restored.

Kind of Famous (2008) 6:12
A mini documentary about one man's almost brush with music fame. Second project created for the Film Production I class at the University of Utah.

The Payoff (2008) 6:32
A father is forced to make an important choice, but is it worth it?

Original music by Seth Neuffer.

Created for the Film Production I class at the University of Utah.

Middle of Nowhere (2007) 5:00
A couple on an all-night road trip come across something unexpected--and it won't go away.

Original music by Seth Neuffer.

I created this short as an entry for the Spielberg/Burnett reality show On the Lot. I didn't get on the show, it tanked anyway, 'nuff said.

Featured on Indy Mogul's 5 Minute Movie House, and winner of Best Picture, Best Horror/Thriller, and Technical Achievement Award.

"Nocturnal House" (2006) 4:05
Always read the fine print...

A contest entry for the Pretty Girls Make Graves' song, "Nocturnal House". It didn't win, but claimed a runner-up spot along with twenty others.

Midnight (2006) 1:25
Beware the femme fatale--and her soon to be ex-husband.

This was a contest entry to create a noir-style film no longer than one minute. It didn't win, and titles were added later.

Official Selection: 2006 Swansea Bay Film Festival

Laughing Stock TV (January-May 2005) 22:00
Are you ready to laugh? Are you ready to rock?

This was my attempt at a local TV show. It is basically a Salt Lake City Who's Line is it Anyway? featuring Laughing Stock, a local improv troupe. It ran for five months, had decent ratings (for a midnight show), but ultimately failed due to lack of money. I'm still proud of it, though.

The above is the final (16th) episode. Click on the following links to watch all the other shows: Episode 15 - 14 -13 - 12 - 11 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - Pilot

Sweet Music (2000) 9:53
A guy looking for some new music gets much more than just and earful.

My first "real" attempt a short film. Now it seems to play long, but there's some good camera work, one great location, and a hot chick in a red dress. You'll have to get to the end of the piece to see that, but enjoy the rest in the meantime.
