Despite all that, the film premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival, was nominated for the prestigious FIPRESCI New American Cinema Award, and launched my career. Since then, I've directed four features, worked with talents like Golden Globe and Emmy Winner Brian Cox (Succession), Bella Thorne (Assassination Nation), Academy Award Winner Wes Studi (Last of the Mohicans), Academy Award Nominee Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard), Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful), Katia Winter (The Boys), Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond) and so many more. All because of a little film I made for no money.
Now I'm sharing all my secrets to micro-budget production so you too can get your feature made for whatever budget you have and start your career!

You don't have faith in yourself that this is possible.
You don't think it's possible to make a great film for no money.
