80 Proof (2016)
Johnny Snub Nose, a slick and smooth cat whose suit alone can earn him a dinner date with Marilyn Monroe, finds himself reflecting on the past while sitting in a bar with a couple made men in the Bocelli Crime Family.
Among Thieves (2015)
Like the old saying goes, there is no honor among thieves. In a world of deception a priest, a babe, a girl scout and two brothers are caught in a game of cat and mouse. But where there is deceit, beware the mouse. Who is who in this toxic tale of lust, revenge and greed. "Among Thieves" is a story about five thieves whose paths cross more than once that you’ll have to watch it twice.
To protect and serve is what our noble officers in blue fight for everyday, but who protects us from Officer Jackson and Officer Lowe? PIGS is a satirical story about the freedoms and trust we offer to our policemen as a society when they could very well be the ones we need most protection from.
