Director Statement

This was my very first short film at Humber College in Toronto. I was chosen to Direct by a panel of professors. I was given the script written by Thomas Vaillancourt and worked to bring the story to screen as best I could. It was a great challenge directing actors for the first time and leading a big crew.
