Glass Talons of the Iridescent Raven
Position: Writer, Director, Producer
Status: Post-Production
Genre: Horror, Giallo
Prod. Co.: Searing Cinema
Release Date: TBA
Rating: TBD
Position Desc: This is my debut feature film that I wrote, directed, and produced. The project came about when I partnered with a producer, that worked for the Syfy and Lifetime channels, to produce this film. With the support of the local dance community in the gulf coast region, we were able to put together a “giallo” inspired film that incorporates dance choreography into a murder mystery. It was pitched as Scream meets Step Up since not many people were familiar with the Giallo subgenre.
Plot: As the biggest show in live entertainment on the Gulf Coast ramps up for production, prominent dancers from all over the country arrive for auditions.

While competing productions attempt to poach talent from each other, the dancers become friends in attempt to keep their enemies close. One will prove to be their greatest enemy of them all when the dancers are murdered one by one.
