Director Statement

We all have stories to tell. Some people use music or poetry to convey a message. Some people express their emotion through photographs, or paintings, or artwork and architecture. Some people tell their stories through writing books or through some other medium to get across a point or an idea, but I believe telling stories through film is the grandest of all.
