"No Laughing Matter" Short Film

For my senior thesis film requirement in the Cinematic Arts Program at Liberty University, I made a comedy short film about a young man named Isaac Grubbs who grows up in a dystopian future, where laughter has almost gone completely extinct. However, he befriends an old hermit man on the outskirts of town, named Mr. Snickers, who happens to be a former comedian, and Isaac begins to discover things about his past and who he is that truly changes his whole perception on his world...but how will his friends, coworkers and roommate treat him? Will he become an outcast just like Mr. Snickers? 


In a world without laughter, you've got to be the joke...

"No Laughing Matter" won a gold medal at the Spotlight Short Film Awards and was a finalist at The Atlanta Underground Film Festival.

A 48 Hour Film Contest Comedy

In 2021, my team and I developed a entry in the Richmond 48 Hour Film Contest in Richmond Virginia. We made a project based off of our genre picking of "Revenge"...which became a comedy short film about two young men swearing revenge upon their school board president's home with graffiti spray paint! Chaos ensues, because while they were planning this, there was a conflicting plan being formed elsewhere....

"Retired" won 1st Place at the Richmond competition, along with other awards including Best Ensemble Cast, Best Director, Best Use of Prop and Best Editing.
