The self-produced and directed television pilot "How to Survive (a Zombie Apocalypse) in Retail" recently won a Merit-Award at the IndieFest Film Awards.

His previous directorial projects include Diamond Planet 2: Emerald Horizon, which screened at the Sun and Sand Film Festival, and the short film Faded Image, which chronicles a young man's struggles with depression and which Troy hopes to share with various non-profits and support groups as a potential educational and outreach tool.

Troy has also directed and/or co-directed several shorts films including: Lunch Time, Diamond Planet, My Beautiful Things, and Army Men and is actively developing future film projects with the intent to direct.
