A short film inspired by the Blue Scholars song “Slick Watts” and concept album Cinemetropolis. A day-in-the-life of Seattle without the Sonics. Starring NBA legend Slick Watts and hip-hop artists Blue Scholars.
EVERY DAY IS A JOURNEY is a Synergistic Cinema project, a story with no predetermined arc told in six chapters, written and directed by six distinct Seattle-area filmmakers. Each director must use the characters and threads introduced by the previous chapter to continue the story in his own style. The series premiered at the Rawstock Film Festival in Seattle and released online in December 2013. Created by Justin Freet and Rawstock Media.
“Six directors join cinematic forces… it takes a special kind of storytelling to make a movie about grifters, yoga devotees, drug dealers, gruesome murders, a Dougie dance session, a tender love story and the musical stylings of BOTH Warren G and Kenny G… Each episode is a stand-alone piece, but there’s something special about watching this cinematic chimera in its entirety… viewed as a whole, EDIAJ is bizarre and completely unpredictable.”

**Official Selection – STIFF (Seattle’s True Independent Film Festival), June 2008**
A buddy cop comedy film with outrageous characters and over-the-top writing. The straight-laced Haymaker is partnered with Sally, who plays it fast and loose with no regard for authority. The pair is forced to work together in order to break a devious organized crime syndicate called The Beards, with hilarious results. The film premiered at the STIFF Festival in Seattle.
