DOMINION came out of a combination of two influences:

the USC School of Cinema and Television's 508 project

(a short film, no dialogue allowed, 16mm B&W)

and the California Instutute of the Arts' production of Bad Behavior

(and my study of it's writer/director, Richard Foreman)


DOMINION is both Film and Theatre

(The actor performs live along with a short (5:33) Black & White 16mm film)


DOMINION was created through a purely organic process of writing

and rewriting and rewriting, with no intention of creating a recognizable

story or character; instead I focused on a specific feeling:



DOMINION is not "about" anything.

It is, rather, a rumination on what we do to ourselves as we make choices

which force us into psychological corners.
