Director Statement

My latest film, Towards A Sun, is one of my favourite pieces I have done so far. I found a song that I loved and went from there, trying to come up with a story to fit. The end result was a story that ended up being very close to my heart; a story of a father and daughter. It was my first time directing a music video, so I learned a lot about emotion through visuals. Thanks to all the team who made it all come together!
