I have been working on several small film projects and I have been busy sending out a newly completed film short titled LABEL HORRORS, to film festivals. The film features Rachael Farrokh, and Jack Ritchie in a dark comedy, what else? I did quite a bit of work on this film project but the film was co-written directed and filmed by my wife Candy Wilder so wish her good luck and maybe the film will get a screening some time soon. Personally I think its a winner.
