FAUX PAWS- Feature Film written and directed by Doug Bari
Gay werewolves Brian and Doug escape from a lycanthrope reservation to seek freedom in Maine, the only state with a sanctioned tolerance of werewolves. Their journey takes them on a road trip, complete with an overnight full moon stop at Brian’s family home. While Brian wrestles with ‘changing’ in front of his family, his threatened brother-in-law conspires with bounty hunters and national police forces giving chase. Will Brian and Doug make it to Maine? If they do, what should they wear? Will they ever be anything more than faux paws? Hide your meat and cheese. Werewolvin’ ain’t what it used to be. Trailer: https://youtu.be/2UDauPqsY78

INVISIBLE HANDS- Graphic Novel Script by Laszlo Tamasfi
