Above is an image from my short film HEMPMENTO, which was recently named an official selection for the STARZ Denver International Film Festival. The festival takes place from October 14 - 24 of this year. Appx. 175 films were accepted from well over 1,000 submissions.

Hempmento, a parody of Memento, was created by a small group of friends calling ourselves Cinema Geeks. I co-wrote, produced and starred in the film; my friend Brad directed and edited it; my co-star, Michael (above left), also composed all of the music. It was such a fun project. We held a screening last month and people loved it. Soon after we were accepted into the festival. From here, we'll try to play the festival circuit -- Sundance, Toronto, South by Southwest, Berlin, hell, maybe even Cannes. Keep your fingers crossed for us ... hopefully some people with lots of money will want to fund a feature from us!
