Cory McCabe Films

Independent Filmmaker wanting to impact the way you think.



Have you ever wonder what all goes into making a film? You've watched behind the scenes of your favorite movies, but it never really shows you how everything happens.

Behind the Film is a video show following the process of making a feature-length movie, specifically for my film, I Am My Father.
