An Up close and personal review of “Havok” with Director and Writer, G. Garner Sweet from Garner Alan Productions.

G Garner Sweet is the director of “HavoK,” a contemporary suspense drama with dysfunctional undertones. Sweet is a partner in Garner Alan Productions, based out of Orlando, Florida. With his writing and producing partner, Dave Guest, GA Productions currently has four feature projects in development which have been written by the duo for their production company.

Havok,” the first of the four to be produced, takes a look at what can happen when a breakdown in the traditional family support system occurs. It begins by taking a look at the students at New World High, where teachers are qualified and have a vested interest in seeing their students succeed. At New World High and in their homes, we are witness to the lives of four seemingly normal teenagers who develop a common bond.     

Senior Matt Reynolds (Joel Diaz) is a natural leader who is part of the school’s championship wrestling team. He is looking forward to a winning season, which could improve his chances of getting into a major college program. Stacey Clark (Aeriel Rech) is a happy-go-lucky senior looking forward to college, who must deal with devastating life changing events. Derek Freeman (Sean Dortch) is a likable, unassuming transfer student from the west coast. He socializes well with his peers, and appears to be adjusting well to his new surroundings. Robbie Solomon (Ian Kramer) is an over-achieving sophomore student taking advanced classes. He is intelligent but viewed as a nerd in the eyes of his peers.

Individually, these modern day students give the appearance of controlled normalcy, coexisting peacefully within their surroundings in an increasingly chaotic world. Together, however, the delicate facade of happiness the students share is easily manipulated by the sinister guidance of a twisted mind.

Stacey, Matt, Robbie and Derek must choose a topic for a Sociology project. Their project must represent an issue that has had a major impact on society. They decide to do a report on the family stories behind troubled high school students. In the process of doing their report, the students succumb to the influence of a seriously disturbed classmate. In this timely, headline grabbing story of naive teenagers pushed into an unrelenting mindset of despair, the realization is that there are those among us – young and old - who would capitalize on life’s unfortunates, for their own perverted purposes.

When director G. Garner Sweet was asked why this topic interested him, he replied, “the subject intrigued me because of the questions it raises. Serious issues in our society will not disappear simply by ignoring them...they must be addressed.”
