On October 15, 2011 two of my short films were screened at the Silk City Filck Fest in Hartford, Connecticut. The first one  was "Ethan". It is a story about a young boy who is wiser than his years and how he solves a personal problem. The second one was "Eeny, Meeny, Miny, MOE...". It is the story of a cop who is dealing with a crumbling marriage. Both of these project lingered on in post production for the lack of a sound editor. Then all of a sudden two ...

Into the Darkness
