Director David Higgens

Former student and now director David Higgens is working on his next feature " The Outlaw Doc Middleton"  Currently seeking funding.

The screenplay is based on upon the real life character Doc Middleton, a "hoss theivin" outlaw that actually lived to be 63 years old.

Paired up with another former student and now successful DP, Zach Armstrong, the duo should bring quite the story to life!  It is sure to be a hit when it hits the screen.

He is one to watch.  I'm looking forward to seeing more of his work!

Will (played by Screenwriter William Hahn) who has a quick wit, good education, beautiful wife…and no direction.

When his wife finds a porn clip on his computer, Will’s real and vividly imagined worlds come crashing together in a battle for his soul. Hahn is joined in the cast by his real-life wife, actor Heidi Hahn, creating a fascinating and fierce onscreen relationship.  The cast also features the excellent Karen Slack (winner of best season by and actress), Chris Kelly (star of "Ink"), Chris Kendall, GerRee Hinshaw and Melinda Smart. Directed by Mitch Dickman.
