Since 10 years old, Potsy and his trusty camcorder were making movies. Swayed by societal pressure, Potsy took “real” job out of college, which fortunately did not work out. Quite literally, he stumbled upon a film set one day and the rest was history.
Potsy created and directed CMT’s Still the King, starring Billy Ray Cyrus, about a one-hit country wonder that emerges as a world-class Elvis impersonator. Potsy Executive Produced Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019) and the historical crime feature Ted K (2021). Potsy has also dabbled in national branded work for Geico, BudLight and Bumble.
His most recent feature, Old Henry received international accolades. The slow-burn Western, received a nomination for the Graffetta d’Oro Award for Best Film at the Venice Film Festival, won the NBR Award for Top Ten Independent Films, and Best Feature at the Algeria Western Film Festival. Potsy is inspired by his surroundings—his locations are not merely backdrops but dynamic characters. His refreshing take on world-building and the thorough care and research he puts into his scripts have cemented him as one of the most promising directors of the decade.
Potsy resides in Nashville with his wife and two children.
