Launching my passion for directing, "Playtime" emerged!

Originally, this debut short was written as a serious horror, with twists and suspenseful turns. Naturally however, once production began it was very clear any short with a five-year-old antagonist could only be a comedy horror.

Without the tireless efforts of many classmates, "Playtime" could not have been completed. I'm very excited to work with these amazing filmmakers again and create more adventurous stories.

 

Enjoy the film and remember, try not to..."scream."
