Foreverland, his most personal movie, about a young man with cystic fibrosis who goes in search of a miracle in the desert heart of Mexico was produced by Bron Studios and Screen Siren Media and was distributed theatrically by EOne.

Max has since directed multiple thrillers, RomComs and Christmas movies for various networks, where his projects continue to garner top ratings, including Midnight at the Magnolia (CSA nominee for best TV movie) starring Natalie Hall and Evan Williams for Netflix, where it spent weeks as a TOP 10 most watched movie worldwide.

Max is actively developing, Wounded, a wilderness survival thriller which was invited to the International Film Finance Forum at TIFF and the IFP No Borders Market in New York, with development funding from the OMDC and Telefilm Canada.
