17 Inch Cobras



Fiction Short

An angry boy from Memphis, Tennessee wants new rims for his Pontiac Grand Prix. He tends to shirk and his mother’s a jerk. What will happen? Watch and see.

This is a project I feel demonstrates my ultimate M.O.: gritty with heart. I was lucky to shoot in my hometown, Memphis, where I was able to collaborate with the then- up and coming best-of-the-best technicians. (Now I can say, “I knew them when.”)
