including features, specs, pilots, and shorts. 

Here are some of his favorites with awards they've

At Death's Door

Feature Horror Comedy

When his father dies, a small-time thief returns home and learns the family business—running a funeral home—includes guarding a Gateway to Hell. He’s not a great thief or a great son, but he’ll have to step up or there’ll be Hell to pay…literally, like, the apocalypse.

Midnight in the Desert
