Do You Have What It Takes To Survive?

As I was writing DETOUR, I often asked myself: “What is the worst way to die?”


As you might have gathered from watching the movie, my greatest fear is being buried alive. It’s a universal fear, that much is clear, and my intention in making the movie was to tap into it. It was also a cathartic experience to be able to confront, and subsequently circumvent, this fear in the writing process by making our character think on his feet, figure out inventive ways to survive and deal with the situation at hand.

How would you deal with a disaster if one were to befall you?

If you haven’t seen DETOUR, check it out and put yourself in the character’s shoes. It’s available on iTunes now:
