“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”

ABOUT: Our Desert Storm veteran hero, Peter, is a player in the underworld of narcotics smuggling and must pit two Drug Lords against each in order to fulfill his contract to get the big shipment from the US into Mexico. His cover is that he is bringing his fashion line from Arizona to Nogales, Mexico for a fundraiser hosted by the local drug kingpin. Riding shotgun is his spoiled mafia princess Sofie, who almost blows the deal. Everyone they meet while navigating the treacherous US/Mexico borderland wants a piece of the action, and most will die trying, but the payload is finally delivered in a most dramatic fashion.
THE DESIGNER will present a new cinematic vision to the genre of thriller. Beginning in mid-2020, principal photography will commence shooting on location in Arizona and Mexico. We look forward to your contributions. If you would like to support our production, please go here.
