Episode 14 – Del Obispo Road

So at the end of last year I wrote a short film based on a story told to me by my friend and actress Rochelle Robinson. I thought it would make a great film and I sat down and wrote it one day while on set filming.  My good friend Edward Coupland wanted to help produce it.

Then I wrote my screenplay Axe. Edward read it and loved the complexity of the character. From there he asked me if I would consider adapting the short film Del Obispo Road into a feature – so that he could act in a film that was complex and well written as well.  I asked my friend Brantley – who had just finished his film Chuckles to assist me.

We are very proud of this project!
