Oxford Film Festival

Can't wait to be at the festival! Financed and shot entirely in and around Shreveport, LA, Oxford's definitely going to feel like a hometown fest for us.

Here's a little youtube clip that should give you all a little of the feel for the film:

In the meantime, here's also a slightly different synopsis that we sometimes use:

Can we make movies slower and quieter and still make them riveting? That’s the question at the heart of Lullaby? This beautifully shot contemporary film noir takes the genre and spins it off into subtle and meditative directions. Co-written by the creator of The Road to Perdition and starring Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Heat) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS, daughter-in-law of Sophia Loren), some have deemed Lullaby the “sweet hitman movie”. The delicate performances and the alarming action make for a great date night. And its atmospheric, brooding tone creates an extremely nervy ride. It’s more emotional than most films in the genre. And while there’s a good share of violence, what really drives Lullaby is character.

P.S. If interested, would love for you all also to please join our LULLABY family. It's a registry of people who receive monthly updates on the film. Through the registry, people can dialogue with me about life in the filmmaking trenches. I also try to provide the updates with a real educational angle, letting people into the behind-the-scenes work and the process of bringing a film out into the world. To join the LULLABY family, all you have to do is send an e-mail to with "Register Me" in the subject of the e-mail.
