Short Film Profile


'Clean' is an urban love story about those odd, occasional people who enter your life casually and yet leave an undeliable mark. When Mariel falls into Peter's life, he becomes diverted from his routine of serial dating and mindless trysts to discover a heretofore, unfelt desire to nest.

Film notes

I wrote 'Clean' to describe a desire to live free and in the moment. I wanted to portray this story through the eyes of a man who becomes enraptured. It was necessary to feel the change from the outside, to experience the whirlwind of Mariel through Peter’s sensation. It is through this spirited encounter that Peter attains a greater self-awareness and though he is ultimately left alone, it is with a feeling of nostalgia, not regret.
