I've always loved fooling around with the idea of making movies. I've made a few less-than-exceptional shorts and wrote a couple awful scripts, but so it goes. It's only recently that I've decided, "Damn it, I am a filmmaker. I will do this, and nothing can stop me." Now, on account of my affection for the paranormal and speculative fiction, I'm working with my up-and-coming production company, S&T Pictures, to make a 10 minute short about first contact.
Here's the title: Knock Knock

The tagline: You never know when the neighbors might drop in.
The premise: On a cold winter's night in the American midwest, four friends with differing perspectives encounter a crashed alien spacecraft. The pilot is still alive, wounded, and extremely dangerous.
This week from Oct. 7th to 9th I'll be knee-deep in pre-production BS, finding a budget, locations, props, and developing the effects to pull off this magic act. Wish me luck. I already know that I will be directing, shooting and editing, and my business savvy cousin, Stephen Smith, will be producing. It will be shot in late December, and I've got my fingers crossed for snow!
If you need a laugh (or need to be pleasantly surprised), it'd be great if you could stop by our YouTube Channel.
I will keep you all updated whenever I know anything.
