Ross Directs. Ross Writes. Ross Edits.
Welcome. There are many aspects to Ross’ creative career; screenwriting, directing, video editing, running film festivals.
Most recently, Ross started his own screenwriters’ group. Ross has been concentrating on a few screenplays in various stages. One script is a horror film. The other script is “American Quest,” a true dramatic story about two Iranian male teenagers looking to get themselves smuggled out of 1980’s Iran into Pakistan in hopes of getting to America and the American dream.
Ross’ short film, “The Octo Circus” screened Sat. March 28th, 2015 at Art Share LA as a part of Movie Night with the Helix Collective. Movie Night is a celebration of music in independent film and of the filmmakers, composers, and musicians who bring these movies to life. Helix Collective performed a live, original musical score. It was an amazing experience! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0S6jzOGU18

In January 2015, Ross founded Movies That Matter LA MeetUp that attended screenings of films with social issue themes. Films were either narrative or documentary films. The first MeetUp was for “The Hunting Ground” (Directed by Kirby Dick, “The Invisible War”) about rape on college campuses. Other films have included “Race,” “Prescription Thugs,” “3 and 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets,” “Seeds of Time,” “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” “Woman In Gold,” “Hidden Figures” and “An Inconvenient Sequel.” Someone else took over the Meetup. Ross is taking a break from running it.
