"Swell", an indie drama that is very much a personal journey and passion project, is finally being released by indie-giant distributor CINEDIGM and PAPA OCTOPUS PRODUCTIONS. This marks my 5th feature film in which I have directed and wrote. The film is available on DVD in Walmart, Target, Best Buy, FYE and on Amazon. It is available on Digital on Amazon Prime, Google Play, Hoopla, FandangoNow, Vudu, Playstation Network and Xbox. It is also available on ONDEMAND on DISH, InDemand, DirecTV and Verizon.
"Swell" shot all up the 101 freeway on the California, Oregon and Washington coastlines starting in Santa Cruz and heading north. Most of the locations filmed are places my Grandparents took me to visit as a child and the story itself is a reflection of a large portion of my life which I have been trying to heal for years.
I hope those of you who check it out enjoy the film as the actors and small crew gave their all on this project
and their passions for it show on the screen. Thank you to Summer, Gabrielle, Brennan, Kua, Adrian, Drew, Kevin S, Danny, Mike, and Jared for everything. A special thank you to Kevin Makely and Shawn Nightingale for helping this project see the light of day and fighting alongside me when the battle seemed impossible.
