Wrapping Up Post-Production!


It’s been a long and challenging road, but I’m finally nearing the end of post-production! This means that Gray Area: Wolves of the Southwest is nearly complete! Finally! I began this project back in 2011 with a determination to do something for Mexican wolves to help create awareness. At the time, roughly 50 wolves were known to exist in the wild, and now today, that number is hovering around 100 wild lobos. Once the final touches are made, I will then begin the process of getting the film out to the world! This means film festivals, screenings, maybe even a chance of a broadcast – all intended to generate more awareness for the lobo.

For those of you reading this who have supported me throughout this project, I can’t begin to thank you enough! It’s been such a challenging and uphill battle to reach the point where I’m at today with this film. It’s truly remarkable. Thank you! Very soon you will get a chance to see all of the hard work that went into this project, and you’ll enjoy watching the film and learning more about the Mexican gray wolf. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Now more than ever!

Recently we learned that approximately 15 Mexican gray wolves were illegally shot and killed this past year since their population numbers climbed above 100 for the first time in the programs history. It could also be the first time this many wolves have been illegally poached. NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE THEY NEED YOUR HELP! We have designed our film to be an educational film, built around the premise of awareness for this species in hopes that a well balanced narrative will help create a better understanding of wolves and the issues at hand. Our film is important, and it needs to be completed soon! But we need your help to finish it!

There are THREE WAYS in which you can help us finish this important film: DONATE, SHARE, or GET INVOLVED.
