I owe my love of writing & directing to the woods.
At 6 years old, I made my first movies in the tiny orchard behind my childhood home. When I stepped into their sun-dappled shade, I felt like I had entered an enchanted forest where my imagination could run wild. I love the woods to this day… but only as a place to visit.
The feature film of Trust Me will be my tribute to the thousands of witness accounts documenting the ongoing phenomenon of a certain species of shape-shifting creature in the forests of North America. Out of a reverent captivation with these accounts, I made my viral short Trust Me as a folk horror movie featuring a new breed of monster - one that fuels our paranoia and forces us to ask who… or what… can we trust?
Trust Me is a blend of my experience producing documentaries at USC Film School, directing a slow-burn thriller as my thesis film ANOTHER LIFE, and writing my latest folk horror feature which made Nicholl Fellowship Quarterfinalist and The Blood List.
Racking up over 1 MILLION VIEWS across Facebook & YouTube, in just 10 minutes Trust Me gives you a glimpse of a new folk horror villain for our current age of anxiety: a monster who looks and sounds like your closest companion… and asks you to follow them into the dark.
