Director Statement

This project was fun and a reminder of where I grew up in rural middle America. This film has been written into a feature and is in the development stage. The shoot itself went much easier then excepted. I believe it had a lot to do with my ability organize and promote an event. And my many experiences from being on film and TV sets.
