truth in journalism - short film 

This short film I wrote, directed & edited, produced by Adi shankar (dread, The grey) and starring Ryan Kwanten (true blood, knights of badassdom, the oath), may be one of my favorite projects ever. 

a creative mash-up of the controversial belgian satire man bites dog and the marvel universe, truth in journalism follows a cynical, jaded journalist in 1988 new York city as a film crew follows his "Process".
