ABOUT THE writer/producer

HELLO, MY NAME IS MAXX RATTO AND I RESIDE IN PROVO, UT. 

I BEGAN WRITING 'DARK VULTURES' IN MARCH 2016. I WANTED TO TELL A STORY THAT CONTRASTS WHAT PEOPLE WILL DO OR WILL NOT DO IN ORDER TO GAIN WHAT THEY WANT. WHAT LENGTHS THEY'LL GO TO IN ORDER TO GET WHAT THEY WANT.

WHEN I SAY "WANTS", I'M TALKING ABOUT BIG, PASSIONATE DREAMS THAT MAKE US UTTERLY OBSESSED AND SOMETIMES, CAUSE US TO HARM. WE READ STORIES ALL THE TIME ABOUT FRAUD, ABUSE, THEFT, AND OTHER CRIMES. THESE PEOPLE RESORT TO CRIME AS A WAY OF GETTING WHAT THEY WANT. SOME RESORT TO MURDER. THIS WHOLE TOPIC OF "HOW FAR ARE YOU WILLING TO GO" BECAME VERY INTERESTING TO ME. HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY IN GENERAL IS INTERESTING. 

IN THIS FILM, I WANTED TO DEPICT JUST THAT. DAMON MARTELLO, A WORKAHOLIC ENTREPRENEUR AND HIS TWO ESTRANGED BROTHERS INVESTIGATE THEIR WEALTHY FATHER'S MURDER, UNFORTUNATELY, THEIR PERSONAL LIVES BECOME THREATENED AFTER INHERITING THEIR FAMILY'S BANK EMPIRE.
