Hand Job: The Musical

Katie's new gig as a hand model convinces her that she is destined for stardom.

Directed for the 2015 Tisch 48 Hour Film Festival, the provocatively-titled Hand Job: The Musical was an immensely fun project. It was written, composed, shot, and edited in under 48 hours with a specific set of rules to follow: we had to include a character who was a "dealer", a "card" prop, and the line of dialogue "are you scared". The project was both challenging and stressful; but, I couldn't be happier with how it came out.

At the Tisch 48 festival, Hand Job won the awards for Audience Choice for Best Picture, Best Ensemble Cast, and Best Original Score.

Starring Emma Camp and Kameron Omidian (Gotham). Original Score by Aaron Kenny.
