Jan 2007- Our production company is presently working on (pre-production) the film "Blood Pact" which is an exciting story about a crime family who double-cross each other over a hidden cache of money, discovered and long forgotten after a well publicized heist from many years ago

November 2008- Thank you all for your interest in our project. We're sure that you are all as excited as we are about seeing this great story come to fruition. Please be patient though as a project of this magnitude takes time to put together. We are still working diligently and things are on track. The one thing that we can't control right now is the time factor. Be assured though that our project is still very much alive and well!
