Adam & Eve (narrative short)
Its been said that rules were made to be broken.
Perhaps this has been true since the beginning
of time. When a father seems obsessed with
enforcing only one strange rule, even the most
obedient child will eventually wonder why.
This modern day imagining of the fall of man
story raises the question: were we set up to fail?
Adam & Eve was shot on location in New York
City and Ridgefield, CT over a three day period in October of 2004.

Being a professional artist means balancing artistic desires with commercial needs. Can an artist accomplish both
