About the Film:
For “A Crimson Man,” I was inspired by the works of Philip K. Dick, reading stories of veterans dealing with PTSD, and the childlike wonder and curiosity in the films I loved growing up. I wanted to combine those themes and to tell it through the gaze of a young boy who pairs up with an unstable war-robot. Growing up a military brat — moving around a lot — I feel a part of me has and will always be drawn to stories about fathers & sons.
Current Status: Fundraising on Kickstarter.
