Arthur Poe is a sadistic killer who likes to torture his victims. In 1993 he was convicted for several murders and received a sentence of death. Years later and days before his execution, the newly elected governor granted Poe clemency based on the testimony given by a psychologist during Poe’s murder trial. Many are outraged by the governor’s act of leniency. A reporter confronts Poe seeking to shed light on the emotionally charged topic. What she learns can never be forgotten.
Before Joseph began attending college he worked many interesting jobs, which gave him
unique life experiences. He then decided it was time to pursue his dream of filmmaking.
His journey started in Connecticut where he began his education. It was here that he got
his first recognition as a writer when a comedic vignette he wrote about life on campus
was published. Joseph then continued his education at the University of Southern
California where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in History and Political Science. It was
after this he felt he had enough knowledge and experience to begin learning the art of
filmmaking and storytelling. He decided to attend Chapman University to gain these
skills. His first movie gained him recognition as a director when his 3-minute short was
shown at the LA Shorts Festival. Joseph looks forward to being a part of the movie
industry as a director and writer.
