Writer Statement

The idea of Godkin and Anna as a character came to me when another filmmaker requested that I write a story about Space. The title GODKIN came shortly after when I saw the idea being more than just a short about people with the abilities to communicate with space and celestial bodies.
The idea of Godkin as a type of people came from the idea that not everyone who is incarnated on earth comes from/was made on earth. Space is a vast expanse too big for a generation to explore yet understand. What if there were people who originated from other planets in spirit but simply wore human bodies in this incarnation?
The film Godkin is also about taking a step away from textbook definitions of people and truly listening to what others have to say. If the leading characters in the film didn’t stop and look into who they truly are, misinformation and mischaracterization would have been the fate of the seers in this world.
The world of Godkin and the Godkin characters themselves show us there’s always more to life than external appearances and roles. Nothing is what it seems externally, even our definition of reality.
