The short film I have written and directed, THE PETTING ZOO, is now finished. It’s a ghost tale about five friends who go to the woods on Halloween and get lost in a local legend. I had invaluable help from the hugely talented Jonathan Zaurin and was lucky to work with a brilliant team of actors and collaborators.
