Director Biography:

Joe Wakefield: originally from Dearborn MI, moved to Los Angeles in 2012. He works in many parts of the industry both on and off-screen, but is primarily a screenwriter. Joe studied film & screen-writing at various schools throughout his education including Columbia College Chicago and The Los Angeles Film School. He currently resides in Hollywood California.

Director's Statement:

“Snipoless is a film that tries to capture the essence of my childhood. Putting together unwatchable HomeMovies into a captivating and emotional montage was how it started out. But it soon became so much more. Two out of the four J-boy, The people that the Film focuses on, are deceased. Creating this film helped me deal with certain emotions that I was previously unaware that I was ignoring. I chose not to include the fact that a lot of the kids portrayed are dead because I didn’t want the focus of the film to be about that. Rather I wanted to show strong friendships that hopefully others will be lucky enough to experience in there lives as well. Your friends are the family you choose.”

Jeff Moser (RIP) 6/12/87 to 8/28/2011

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
