Del Obispo Road

So my writing partner Brantley J Brown and I just finished our first script together. I had written the short film Del Obispo Road – a horror short –  and Brantley helped me adapt it into a feature film script. Actor and producer Edward Coupland will star as the lead, Ryan.

When Ryan’s sister goes missing in 1985, he is plagued by the memory of someone – or something – that he felt was responsible for her disappearance. Twenty years later he still can’t forget that night and the weight of that memory begins to push him to madness. When he starts to see his sister again, Ryan starts to search for answers as to why his sister vanished, and if the dreams that haunt him are real.

This story is based on a terrifying event shared to me by Rochelle Robinson.

We did a great interview about this film and script on my podcast Mimosas With Michael. Enjoy!

Axe Script Reading

Finally finished the feature version of the script Axe….I invited over a few of my actor friends, including a few of the actors who are involved in the film. These actors really delivered and the feedback we got from both the actors reading and those in the audience was really good. It seems as if everyone is loving the script. Time to move forward and get this thing produced!
