The official poster for my upcoming short film Hangry has been released. I’m currently in post-production and will be delivering a rough cut to the Memphis Film Prize on June 12. If Hangry is selected to the Top 10, it will screen along with the other nine finalists during the first weekend of August.

Right now I’m in pre-production on a new short film that I’ll be directing for The Memphis Film Prize. Hangry is a comedy about one elderly man’s attempt to right a lunchtime wrong. The shoot is scheduled for May 4-5 in Collierville, TN. In addition to an actor to play the main role of The Reverend, I will need extras to portray staff and residents of the nursing home location.

The Memphis Film Prize is back for its 3rd year. The kick off event is scheduled for February 8 from 6:30-9:00PM at the Cove Bar on Broad Avenue. The goal of the Memphis Film Prize is to showcase the city as a viable filmmaking destination and to promote the talents of the local cast and crew (But you don't have to be a resident to participate in the competition; you simply have to shoot within Shelby County limits). I competed in its inaugural year with my short film Final Hit, which made it into the Top 10.
After registering, filmmakers usually have around three months to produce a short narrative film of their choosing. Judges select the top 10 films and those finalists are screened at the annual Film Prize festival, held each August. The winner of the $10,000 is determined by a combination of audience votes and judges' scores.
If you're a filmmaker in and around the Memphis area, I encourage you to get involved. It's a great way to meet other talented individuals, and you just may walk away with $10,000.
