Mood Reel for No Place
No Place is a Tarantino style action crime road picture.
Two desperate teen fugitives flee their abusive homes trying to outrun the law
until they discover that the home they seek is within each other.
After committing a heinous crime in revenge for enduring years of abuse at his hands, 15 year old Willow escapes with her father’s pistol and cash. Meantime, 17 year old Joe has accidentally poisoned his obese mother and though he is flat broke, he’s got a Mickey Mantle Baseball card worth millions.They chance upon each other at a gas station and flee their horrendous pasts heading west.
With the law, Joe’s landlord and Willow’s Uncles hot on their heels, the distraught teens disguise themselves as newlyweds to great effect. Despite his resistance, Joe recognizes himself in Willow when he discovers that they are both on the run from abusive home lives yet still hold out hope for a brighter future. Joe vows to buy themselves a home of their own with the money from the Mickey Mantle. But just yards away from the baseball card convention where he can cash in the Mickey, the law guns them down.
Through their ordeal, the teens discover the inexplicable resilience of life and that the home they were seeking was within each other all along.
Animatic for a pivotal moment in No Place
IN this scene, Johnny Ray, the gas station attendant gives Willow a ride back to her car but things go horribly wrong!
I’ve written, directed and produced over 10 shorts and hail from the Underground film scene of New York City’s Cinema of Transgression. My movies have screened all over the world and were featured at the Museum of Modern Art in 2018 and at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood in 2022.
No Place, is my bad ass cult movie for the “Me Too” era where Badlands meets The Wizard of Oz and has a foursome with Thelma and Louise.
It's is a raw and edgy, fast-paced ride into eternity and back again. Set in a white trash world against the mystical ambience of the road, there is a spiritual undertone where no matter how bad it gets, there is always just a glimmer of light within the darkness.
No Place has the vibes of a 90s road picture nostalgic for the 50s. The film gives a visual wink to the cinematic genius of Quentin Tarantino, the breathtaking landscapes of Terence Malik and the dreamlike wonder found in The Wizard of Oz.
