UNSPOKEN is my latest short film. It tells the story of a couple who are challenged by a long distance relationship and communication or (lack thereof) through social media. I wanted to explore the idea of how electronic communication can lead us to be more internally focused, self-centered, narcissistic. We think of our needs, wants, desires and feel empowered and emboldened to put them first. What then is the effect of acting on these needs, feelings and desires? Has the age of electronic communication, made it more difficult to speak face-to-face? We'll see...

I'd like to add some quick production notes. This was the first film I made entirely by myself. Why go it alone you may ask...? Two reasons: budget and schedule. I had neither and because of that, there was no time or money to hire a crew. I shot whatever I could, whenever I could, however I could and embraced a truly DIY style of filmmaking.  It was indeed a challenge but I was inspired by the process. Saving me from ruin were my amazing cast: Holly Rokes, Jon Kennedy, Gina & Ricky Rogers and Jed Reynolds. Thanks to their hard work, dedication and flexibility, we were able to create something special.

Starring: Holly Rokes, Jon Kennedy, Jed Reynolds, Gina Rogers, Ricky Rogers
