Director Statement

Story ideas for movies must come from the most private and perceptive avatars one's created for oneself. As they say write what you know. And ideas will be possibly authentic, if you somewhat know thyself, or in some cases know thy-selves. Good stories are also derived from real – life experiences, events, episodes. The story of 'Noirotica' is remotely and very loosely based on a series of serious events and the ensuing feelings that were somewhat real. I am glad I've been able to flash out and assimilate a story, if only thematically, into an engaging photo play... ~Ishwar L. Maisuria
