“I’ve been making movies since I was 11 or 12 and usually the budget wasn’t enough to reflect what was in my head.

So I thought making a movie poster could better reflect it,” he said, adding the works include posters for short films and featured he’s  completed throughout his career, but also three new films he is working on. The new films include a romantic comedy set  in, aptly, a movie theatre.

“And on another of the new ones, I’ve used a couple actresses I hope to be working with on the film,” he said.
