When I decided to make "Nemesis" I knew it would be a sequel to my previous short films "Ricochet" and "Safe" but I wanted it to be a stand alone short film as well like the others.

This was going to be another building block into the universe I've been creating with this mysterious organization called "The Institute" -- that I'd like to eventually turn into a feature film or a TV series of some sort.

We shot for one day an a local apartment complex that doubled for the ending and conference rooms scenes; another day at an upscale bar in Bellevue, WA; and then three days at the Fremont Foundry -- a converted old power station to an event space.

Once filming was complete, I took on the task of doing all of the editing, VFX shots, sound mixing, color grading, music licensing, marketing material, as well as editing and sound mixing the trailer myself.
