Night OwlsUSA, 2015 : International Premiere
What starts as a one-night stand takes an unexpected turn when Kevin (Adam Pally) discovers that the girl he went home with is the spurned lover of his boss. As the booze wears off and he realizes where he is, Kevin comes across Madeline (Rosa Salazar) who has taken a bottle of sleeping pills in a suicide attempt. Having to stay up together all night (doctor's orders), the two begin opening up to each other. With undeniable on-screen chemistry and excellent pace, stars Adam Pally and Rosa Salazar exchange banter and offer a fresh blend of comedy and emotion.
The comedy-drama which had its premiere at SXSW features many familiar faces from the small screen including Adam Pally (The Mindy Project, Happy Endings), Rosa Salazar (Parenthood), Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), Rob Huebel (Transparent) and Peter Krause (Six Feet Under, Parenthood).

After directing and co-writing two comedic shorts, ALLISON and FIRST KISS, he moved on to his second feature, NIGHT OWLS.
