About this submission
A broken man on the edge of suicide finds meaning in the very place that gave birth to his darkness.
Union City, CA, USA
I’m an East Bay Area native who spent most of my life as a musician. I decided to write my first screenplay in 2018 when I turned 28. Until that point, I never seriously considered writing. My band and my drums were my whole world until I started directing and producing our own music videos. This gave me the creative fulfillment I never knew I was looking for. As I started making more videos with story lines, I realized writing was where my true joy came from. I set a goal, I’d spend one year not making any music videos and devoting myself to writing a screenplay, as well as educating myself on the craft. This lead me on the journey to write and direct my first short film.
