What is your project about?
 Mallory follows the story of a father who lost his young daughter tragically. But suddenly, without warning, he receives a phone call from someone claiming to be his daughter, Mallory.

What are your ambitions with your project?
 I wanted to tell a compelling and interesting story and draw the viewer in, wondering what's next.

Tell us something about your shooting. What pleasantly surprised you?
 When we filmed Mallory, I was pleasantly surprised that as we scouted locations, we were able to use so much of the local scenery and incorporate the neighborhood in Philadelphia in a way that totally captured its charm and beauty.

Why should distributors buy your film?
I feel Mallory is the kind of film that gets people excited to talk about and keeps viewers suspended until the very end.

Which topics interest you the most?
 I love the suspense elements and building tension!
