Worth It

“Worth It” is a romantic comedy shot entirely in P.O.V camera style. A young man is going to meet his longtime friend and love of his life who he hopes to profess his love for her. But instead he is blindsided with a hurtful and emasculating proposal from her that will leave him with only one question to answer;  is it all “Worth it”.

“Welcome to the Friend Zone”  is a romantic fantasy comedy set in a mysterious basement (man cave, social club, or support group) where men who have fallen in love with women who only see them as friends preside for the rest of their lives. Until they give up hope on their friendships with the women they love and move on with their lives, then and only then can they ever hope to escape the “Friend Zone”

“Demon Love” is a romantic horror comedy where a beautiful but naïve young woman goes out to a bar to drink with her underage friends.
