Director Statement

Volumes is a very important film to me. As someone who has gone through life with anxiety, depression, ADD, and many other mental illnesses, it's important that my community sees some positivity. Volumes is meant to be uplifting and empowering to those people who have always felt different, or who have struggled with mental illness.
