Independent Film Work

(narratives, documentaries, music videos, short films)

Welcome to one of my favorite pages on my site! (They’re all my favorite.) Here is a sampling of the short film work that I do. Most of these were written, directed, and shot by me, unless otherwise specified. Each film is an improvement from the previous film, so I’ve listed these from most recent to oldest. Have a click around and enjoy some of my favorite works that I’ve created thus far in my filmmaking journey.

For a full list of films, some of which are unable to be shared publically at this time, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

My heart belongs to my island home. This film was created while I was in Hawai'i attending my Papa's funeral. Mahalo to my ohana. Much aloha to all.
The sounds of an empty house become overpowering as Abby learns to live alone. A dripping faucet, a ceiling fan, a neglected fish tank all add to the cacophony of sounds that Abby hears in her house on a nightly basis.
This project was created on a whim. The goal was to write a short script that multiple directors could work with. This was written, directed, shot, and edited by me. It is a little glimpse into life and reality.
Short film created for Composition and Digital Design for Digital Cinematography, at Full Sail University. This version has been extended from the original and color corrected in post-production. There are still many aspects that I can do differently to enhance this film, but without reshooting, this is what I was able to accomplish.
