At Tucson, AZ's West Mesa High School, Dana sees himself as an inspirational teacher. But his adaptations of popular films, as performed by his top students Rand and Epiphany, are not resonating. When his latest--re-creating Erin Brockovich--is dismissed by the 9th grade drama critic and his department is targeted for closure, Dana must reach deep into himself for creativity. After much perspiration, he conceives a sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet--a musical-theater extravaganza that will disdain both political correctness and dramatic credibility. Rallying and rousing his class, Dana casts a wider net by recruiting transfer students like Ivonne for key roles. With rehearsals underway, objections from school officials and the community are soon raised, but Dana will not be denied his freedom of artistic expression. After all, "to thine own self be true." Dana gets unexpected support from ACLU attorney Cricket Feldstein and his favorite actress, Elisabeth Shue. Above all else, he fervently believes that his opus must be staged, and nothing can break his optimistic spirit.

Deliver Us from Eva (2003) as Director Of Photography
A trio of men plot to free themselves of their mates' unattached and seemingly omnipresent older sister Eva. Eva has a sweet face but a steely disposition: a few choice words from her and a once-confident man becomes a virtual basket case. Eva has been in charge of her younger sisters ever since their parents died, many years ago. The mere fact that they're married or engaged hasn't deterred her one bit from continuing to take charge of their lives. But the cost of putting family first has been the deferral of her own dreams--and the assumption of a harder-than-nails personality that no man has been able to crack. Eva's uncanny ability to interfere with her sisters' affairs has not endeared her to their spouses and partners. The men would also like to close out and divide the family trust fund that Eva oversees. So they concoct a simple plan: compensate cash-strapped ladies' man Ray Adams to romance and distract Eva from her financial duties. Sparks fly between Ray and Eva--but the plan goes awry, leading to surprising consequences and complications.
