It’s two in the afternoon and waves of heat radiate from the hot sand in the desert of Palmdale. Today is the type of day where the sun feels as if it is sitting on top of you baking away at your flesh turning it into leather almost instantaneously. I stand in this desolate terrain holding a neon green umbrella over a young and pretty actress to shield her from the sun, and the only thing I ask myself is, what the hell am I doing here?
“I’m an actor, not a geocacher. At least, I wasn’t a geocacher. In fact, eight months ago I didn’t even know what geocaching was. I was some form of what a geocacher might call a muggle.
Back then, I was on a job shooting a commercial for Bud Light beer when a fellow actor started talking about geocaching. I overheard the conversation and asked what in the world was he talking about. He explained the process of geocaching and my mind was blown.
I had never heard of such a thing. All around me there were hidden caches and people were playing this game and I didn’t even know it was going on. I was truly fascinated. That day, I went home and wrote my short film. After eight months of revisions, I finally had a workable screenplay and here we are today shooting the movie.

Roughly eight months ago, I decided that waiting around to get cast in a film was no longer acceptable. It has always been my dream to make a movie, it suddenly occurred to me that I was perfectly capable of making one on my own. Why wait?
Eight months later, I finished working on my script (yes, it took eight months to create 17 good pages of text) and not long after, my dreams of making a movie began immediately falling into place.
