Editing has been going full force for the past few weeks. I'm happy to say we've finished laying out Touch and we've begun Sight. We're at roughly the thirty minute mark. Hopefully, the rough cut will be done by the end of the year.

A new trailer should be up in about a month. We'll keep you all posted.

That's a wrap!

Circuit has finished principal photography. Now we need to piece it all together.

Being the co-writer and now editor on the project, I can't wait to see how everyone involved helped translate the script into a visual story. Words cannot capture how grateful I am for the amount of hard work and creativity put in by everyone involved. We wouldn't have been able to accomplish this massive goal without each and every person involved.

So, about that wrap party . . . ? Any thoughts? If so, let me know at
