Director Statement

I am a film maker who is interested in the murkier side of existence. The Buddhists talk of “The dream-like nature of reality”, and this is an idea I like to explore cinematically in a dark and atmospheric manner. Nightmares and dream-scapes designed to provoke and entertain.

I am also interested in current social and environmental issues we face and like to explore how we come to terms with these issues through film.
