Game of Thrones meets Indiana Jones on The Thin Red Line in this historical fantasy exploring the roles of WWII’s creative minds. Re-examining the true stories of World War II with the lens of a kaleidoscope to reveal an esoteric root cause of the war and the acts of waging it. Characters range from the bow-tie clad suicidally tormented professorial engineer, a stoic Mongolian eagle hunter, a post-modern Joan of Arc, an anarchical Senegalesesteamship captain, a telepathic steel-working Pittsburgh woman, a xenophobic rodeo rider, to a mad-genius in a Saxon castle, and dozens more in this on-going series of period drama, action, black-comedy and philosophical exploration in what is arguably considered the closed case of the Greatest War.

Short film screenplays:
BREAKING ICE - A single mother makes a desperate sacrifice, and the audience must reexamine what we think we know about immigration law.
The FUTURE MACHINE - The year is 2008, or maybe it's 1994... a tragedy of time travel and guilty denial at the onset of a smartphone promising to hold the 'future in your hands'.
LOOSIE LUCY - A bomber crew quickly resets from one attack, preparing for their next mission; their process seems disturbingly familiar.
DAMAGED - Love is a battlefield, or in this case, a demolition derby.
OCTOPUS - A balloon, dreaming he's a human, has the uncanny ability to return to the woman from whom, by wind, he was taken.
LOVE, WOLFMAN - A domesticated werewolf finds the monster under his bed.
