With experience as an editor of commercials, reality television, and documentaries, Director M. Sean McManus has focused on creating macro-budget films as a form of self expression. Utilizing a strict drug regime, advanced techniques of memory dilation, temporal analgesia, and hypno-aggressive meditation; all incidents depicted are based on lived experiences and made more real by the cinematic process. It is with the unmatched support of producer Mary E. Brickthrower and the help of countless others that these visions come to life before you.
