Hello Milwaukeeans and beyond!

I am excited to tell you about Neptune, a new feature film that I am producing for the award-winning company Last House Productions.

As with Last House Productions’ previous films I Want You To Know and The Bully, Neptune takes an inventive, immediate approach to cinema. Set on a small island off the coast of Maine, Neptune is a unique and rich exploration of an orphaned adolescent’s manic journey to self-discovery prompted by her insular upbringing and the tragic disappearance of a peer. A unique and beautiful journey, Neptune couples haunting visions with themes of loss, animism and identity.

Our first production phase of Neptune will take place this coming summer and extend through October. June will be here before we know it and we have much work to do before the cameras can roll, including securing locations, hiring a crew, production manager and director of photography. Funds are required for travel expenses— gas, food and lodging, acquiring set pieces, and renting lights and equipment.

Making movies is an expensive endeavor, and creating a quality feature film takes many dedicated people working many hours. Independent art cannot thrive without outside financial support.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to Last House Productions. Last House Productions is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Neptune must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Donations may be made by credit/debit card online at the Last House Productions Fractured Atlas profile or on our IndieGoGo campaign page at www.indiegogo.com/Neptune. If you wish to make your contribution by mail, send a check to the address below. (Note: Checks should be made payable to: Fractured Atlas, with “In behalf of Last House Productions” in the memo line):
