  • Hawaiian Ted Cruz Supporter, Raleigh, NC. April 2016.

  • Tomorrow night in Texas is the world premiere of my first film, Farmer/Veteran, at the Dallas International Film Festival.

    If you can make it out, we’d love to have you.

    Thank you to my collaborators in making the film and to all that have supported our efforts to raise awareness of the topics of veteran’s mental health and reintegration after war.

    Special thanks to Alex and Jessica for being willing to share their story, warts and all, in the hopes that their experiences can help others.

  • Check tomorrow’s INDY Week for Grayson Currin’s profile of Eric Bachmann for which I made this photo, and a bunch of others…

    It was the second time I have worked with Eric over the last few months, always a pleasure….

  • After 4 years of work, I am very proud to announce that Farmer/Veteran will premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival on Friday, April 15, with another showing on April 16.

    The feeling of getting this film out into the world is hard to communicate, but we hope it can do some good, and if nothing else, get people talking, thinking and trying to understand combat related trauma and what it is doing to 100,000′s of young people in this country.

    I cannot thank Alex and Jessie enough for allowing us into their world over the last few years, sharing their lives, ups and downs.

    If you can make it to Dallas, please come on down…..

    After three combat tours in Iraq, Alex Sutton attempts a fresh start hatching chickens and raising goats on 43 acres in rural North Carolina. Alex embraces life on the farm with his new love Jessica, but cycles between a state of heightened alert and “feeling zombified” from a cocktail of prescriptions meant to stabilize his injured mind. When Jessica becomes pregnant, the dark past Alex has tried to escape—the loss of his first family, the war he was forced to leave—closes in on him. The farm becomes another battleground. Farmer/Veteran attempts to reconcile the identity of a perfect soldier with the reality of a haunted man determined to hold onto the best chance at peace he’s ever known.
