"Begging for Change"
Another film by JT Tepnapa, from the creators that brought you the hilarious screen gem, Masturbation: Putting the Fun into Self-Loving, comes an entirely different kind of film. What if? What if we had more than one destiny? What if we had more than one path? Would it be worth it? Whether you like it or not, life can spin you in all different directions. `Begging for Change' takes one day out of the life of runaway gay teen. After receiving a silver dollar from a mysterious man in black, he is thrown on a journey of two roads, one leads him back onto the streets, and the other road leads him home.

"My Humanity"
I'm scoring this documentary about a family who adopted 10 kids with cerebral palsy. This is a great film that sends a message of unity and undertanding, which I feel is lacking in todays world. This film is directed by Daniel Skaf of the Chapman University graduate film program.

"Plan B"
Directed by Morgan Mead, written by Alex Smith, this is a story about Ginger, a beautiful exotic danncer, and her boyfriend "Lex", the club DJ. I wrote all of the music for the scenes in the club. This film was chosen to be screened at the 2005 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival in Los Angeles.

"The Loaf "
Produced by LA Special, this is my first film with this group. Asif Ahmed had a big part in making the music work with the film. It's a wacky, crazy short about a girl scout, a homeless dude, and an overweight couple. I wrote a cartoony score for this sketch.

"LA Special"
I'll be working with LA Special, a team of talented artists based in Los Angeles. I've scored a film with one of the film makers involved in the project. We're on channel 36, Fridays, from 11 pm throughout April 2005!

"Well That's Showbiz"
Written by Regan Redding, this is about the price of fame and fortune. How far are you willing to let things slide in order to make it in show business? I think this topic is appropriate as we have all asked ourselves how far we'd go and how much are we willing to sacrifice to get what you want.
