Northern Mississippi 1932:
In a cabin in the woods, a blind blues guitarist will discover his destiny from a lovesick goddess who seeks to corrupt his soul.
GOD MAKER is Coop's latest, most ambitious short film and will be ready for a late 2013 festival season.
Told in reverse, this experimental made-in-48-hours film begins with a shocking murder then backtracks (like a viewer rewinding a VHS tape) to reveal the chilling origins of this tragedy.

My short film THE BEST DAY premiered in October 2011 at the Delta Cinema in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
Little did I know I had a special guest in the audience who was about to ask me a question during the Q&A. Yep, I got a little flustered when I saw who it was.
