VINYL (2013) Feature Narrative
Co-Producer: Steven Berger - Associate Producer: Alison Carter
Second Unit Director: Phillip Matarrese
In the summer of 2004, Mike and his bandmates hired a local band to mime their new pop punk single after a record company told him he was too old to rock n roll. To sell a sexy younger image, he put together a music video with a faux band and had them perform the song in public. The song went straight into the top twenty before they busted the scandal. The film is loosely based on these true events.

A home for Elham (In Production) Feature Documentary
Producer: Alison Carter
In 2013 the charity Action for Arts asked for our help to send a two man film crew with 18 year old musician Dani Washington (drummer with the band Neck Deep). We wanted to document the story and the journey Dani undertook, through a random connection on Facebook. OUr story follows a young family suffering harsh living conditions in one the poorest areas of Europe. We wanted to grab the attention of international media, so we could raise awareness and funding to house the Krasniqi family. Along the way we have encountered both happiness and heartbreak.We've worked with the Ideas Partnership a remarkable NGO in Kosovo, and linked with many generous people from around the world, who have helped us. In 2020 we will visit Fushë Kosovë for a third time.
