Times Like Dying

I am lucky enough to have some extremely talented friends. I can’t begin to tell you how proud of them i am. For starters take a look at this short film they wrote, produced, shot and edited. It’s amazing. It’s a western. It’s got horses. Over the last 10 years I’ve have the pleasure of […]
