HIDDEN HERO

writer, director

Hidden Hero is an imaginative urban thriller with touches of fantasy that uniquely brings magic and wonder to the hood.   This classic tale of good versus evil is aimed at young adult audiences.

It's about a foster girl with a tragic past who discovers hidden powers and ancient prophecies that claim she must free the streets from a mysterious Darkness that is taking over.  But an unlikely friendship turns the drug kingpin she is told to destroy into the father figure she has always longed for.   In the end, she must decide between saving the city, saving herself, or saving the only people in the world that love her.

NOT PART OF THE PLAN

writer, attached to direct

This opposites attract romantic dramedy is set in the college environment and celebrates the craziness, whimsy, and pressures in that stage of life.  "Not Part of the Plan" is filled with humor and quirky characters, but does not do so at the expense of authenticity and heart.  It's similar in tone to films like "The Way Way Back", "Perks of Being a Wallflower", or the classic "Say Anything".

The story centers around Zac, the studious, focused college student, who has his successful future all mapped out - until the free-spirited Zoey comes along and threatens that plan.

Log Line: On the brink of his family losing their home to the local mob boss, the kind and unlucky ten year old, Park Little, apprentices for the local hitman in order to earn enough money to save his family from foreclosure.
