A new direction
I was unaware for many years that I was preparing for a life in filmmaking. I grew up as a Disney kid who never missed any of the Disney Sunday night episodes or movies during their long TV run. Walt Disney greatly influenced my creativity. In Disney’s world anything was possible and I not only believed it, I pursued the seemingly impossible. It produced a short music career, a 20 plus years in advertising despite a call and pursuit in ministry. Now I’m chasing a film career.
It’s not any director’s style or the
many well done films that has motivated me in this direction. My drive is motivated by a zeal to correct the American lens that does not reflect
the full American multi-cultural experience.
There are too many other stories to be told
and as a producer I want to be sure they are told through the mouths and lens of those to whom
the story has come, not a Hollywood rendition.

This project is a speculative commercial concept for an insurance company. The design and writing is to present an emotional scene with humor. The main theme is less hassle with rising premium and most of all the reduced deductibles.
I wrote this commercial to present the frustration of the hassle one must face after the accident with their insurer. It's the upfront deductible we all hate.
