A Southern short film about a would-be religious con artist and his adopted brother who are pitted against aquatic folklore incarnate.
In 2009, I read a script about a folkloric sea monster and knew I had to shoot this film. In August 2011, we were finally able to assemble the talent and funds necessary to shoot the short on 16mm film over a span of 8 days in the lakes, churches, and homes of Dayton, TN. In April 2013, Jesus Fish premiered at the Indie Grits Festival in Columbia, SC, and has since been making the festival rounds.
