Hot Films in the Making

41 SHOTS is a story that examines the power and the [tragic] consequences of ASSUMPTIONS. It’s a story inspired by a hate-filled act that leads to [questionable] excessive force by a white police officer against a young African American man – an all to familiar story but this story has several expected twists.

*ABOUT*
David has worn hats above / below-the-line which has served as on-the-job training to becoming a filmmaker. His films have won Awards and two of his feature screenplays were semi-finalists in major screenwriting contests one of which is being developed. David attended NYU’s film program and is a life long student of Behavioral Psychology and Communications. He was also courted by college recruiters for his skill to pitch a baseball, but nowadays divides his time between filmmaking, writing, producing, pitching screenplays and coming up with a way to keep his socks together after they’ve been laundered. 😉
