Early life & Career

Growing up, Fails met Joe Talbot at the park that divided their neighborhoods. They soon became close friends and first began making short movies together during high school. Their short film Last Stop Livermore, made in collaboration with Joe's brother Nat, was a finalist in the Golden Gate Awards. Their second, official short American Paradise premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

Talbot and Fails conceived of the film The Last Black Man in San Francisco as teenagers, and the pair eventually created a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to fund it. 

Danny Glover, a San Francisco native, called Fails directly to express his interest in the film. The film is semi-autobiographical and tells the story of a fictionalized version of Fails, played by the actor, who attempts to reclaim a Victorian home built by his grandfather in a gentrified area of San Francisco. The film was Fails' first professional acting role. The Last Black Man in San Francisco received positive critical reception.

In 2019, Talbot and Fails formed a production company called Longshot Features.

He starred in Pieces of a Woman, a 2020 drama film directed by Kornél Mundruczó, from a screenplay by Kata Wéber as Max.
