Director Statement

I like to say Walking in the Spirit is a short film with a big message. The reason being is that every viewer after watching this film, tend to leave obtaining something a little different from the message of the film. As the writer and director of this project, I wanted to explore the possibilities of the “what if” question. In every decision one makes in life there will always be some sort of consequence either good or bad. This film takes you on an emotional journey where one of these scenarios is actually played out right before the viewers eyes. The difference is that in real life, there are no do over’s. You don’t get the chance to take back yesterday. When you walk in the spirit and are true to yourself, you are covered by the LORD.
