Recently I had the honour to direct, shoot and edit a short film based on a fragment from a novel that will be published very soon, Blue Suicide.
I would like to thanks the author Jennifer Venner for trusting me with this special project. I also want to thank to the actors who did a great job and we had a wonderful collaboration:
Wyn …… Tim McLarty
Frank …… Michael J. B. Hogan
Claire …… Lily Domingue, and also to the talented music composer who created the emotional soundtrack Mikhai Louise Vergara.
Blue Suicide is a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the politics and deal-brokering between the police and the oversight agency that investigates them when any civilian is killed, seriously injured, or harassed in the line of duty. It explores the impact on the lives of the families of the victims and how technology has empowered citizens and reversed the concept of the ‘surveillance society’. It is also the story of Wyn Rhys, a police officer turned investigator turned Director of SPOA and his personal demons, as he grapples with complicated feelings for a female survivor from one of his early investigations.
The novel Blue Suicide will be coming out in September, 2015

and some extras:
Google Glass(es) are no longer a dream, although for many they still do feel and appear as something surreal. Those select enough already have big plans for their future pairs. One such individual already has developed an interesting application. In a widely circulating video set inside of a restaurant, a guy uses Google Glass to uncover background information about his potential girlfriend. How this works exactly…can be out by watching the video.
The particular youtube clip has almost 3 million views, and the reason it turned viral can be partly attributed to how the script does not diverge greatly from reality.
One should keep in mind however that real men don’t need help from technology to impress the ladies.
