More Than Home is a short documentary produced in the fall of 2015 by a small group of production students at Houston Baptist University. We partnered with many service providers in the Houston area, gathered personal testimony from several formerly homeless individuals, and gathered information from Houston’s Coalition for the Homeless. Hours and hours of information were compiled into this short film, which premiered at Houston Baptist University’s first-ever student film festival.
Houston Baptist University is one of the most diverse universities in the nation. I wanted to highlight my friends long term goal with a forward movement. We all have different stories which drives our personal vocation. Thus such as Michael, we all have the desire to leave a legacy.

I have lived in the small town of Katy for almost my entire life. The quiet suburbs reflect the persona of the community. I tried to capture three words which define my little world: relaxed, timeless, mellow.
Zach, Jordan, and I always try to find creative ways of recruiting students to HBU. Recent Hollywood years have proved to follow a set template in their trailers. We wanted to mimic the black faded screens and distorted brass to bring comic relief to incoming freshman.

Husky Revue is HBU's once a year talent show which gives students of varying degrees to come together and showcase their hobbies and skills. This video became the introduction to the show and was then followed by a series of short interviews for each group that performed. I wanted to create ties to shows such as American Idol and AGT to create a similar setting for the audience members.
Mercedes Benz of Sugar Land held a Holiday instagram contest which challenged contestants to combine Mercedes and the Elf on the Shelf. I love Toy Story, so when I saw the girls playing with Ken I thought it would be entertaining to give them life and make a getaway in a brand new Mercedes.
Ron and I were studying abroad in Spain when we befriended an Italian who cooked at a local restaurant named Il Dolce Far Niente. As Film makers, we thought it would be fun to have dinner at his restaurant and create a short promotional video on our experience. The hand-crafted meals were delicious!
