FAMILY SNAPSHOT: This film is based on true events that are taken from our news headlines. A father and son who are ex-cons and have a jaded vision of what the world is around them, decide to plot a mass shooting and a massive event. This will be my eighth feature length film and I plan on getting the film released to large platforms like Prime and Netflix. The film is a dark drama and will be in black and white and will showcase many Tampa Bay landmarks and areas in a cinematic way. We begin shooting the film in March around the Tampa Bay area.

on the right path. Jonathan also is fighting a drug addiction and battling depression and mental 

illness. He also is attractive to a woman who appears to be bi-racial who he meets at the 

mental health counselor’s office. Things start to go downhill when his father is released from 

prison. His father known as Big Oz served twenty years for armed robbery. But he was also 

ahead of a white supremacy group and sold arms along with setting off explosives at minority 

owned businesses. His father is now an old man and is dealing with Alzheimer’s, but when he 

gets out he still believes he is in charge of the white supremacy group and wants to finish what 

he started and take this country back to where it belongs. Big Oz plots a plan to set explosives 

somewhere and he wants to plan a mass shooting. Jonathan is against all this at first and 

knows his father isn’t right in the head. But Jonathan has his demons as well and is trying to 

fight them. He tries to stay on the straight and arrow but things start to fall apart. His mental 

health counselor finds him a job as a dish washer, but he only lasts one day on the job and is 

fired. He tries to make advances to the woman he likes but it doesn’t work out for him. He then 

gets back on drugs and starts to listen to his father and help him go ahead with his plans.The 

two have some failed attempts at some bombings and shootings. No one is killed and no one is 

caught. Eventually Big Oz’s illness catches up with him and his is forced to go to the

then goes back to the mental health counselor’s office with a gun and plans to kill his social 

worker and everyone there. Once in the building he has second thoughts about doing it. Even 

looking at a young couple there with a child makes him now want to go through with it. But he

know who he is and are looking for him. Jonathan sees the ghost of his father and talks to 

him. Police are now on their way and he can hear them coming. He also listens to the news as 

he hears them list the names of the people who died. This drives Jonathan crazy and cries 

out. He then puts the gun to his head and as police are about to come in he kills himself.
