Director Statement

PTSD was something that needed to be talked about especially in our society where our cultural values outweigh our moral values. When I received a copy of the script, my mind was made immediately. I signed onto the project the same day because the script was so well written in a way where a story could be told for entertainment and a long-standing issue addressed.

I remember having to shoot the 10-page script in 24hrs, it was quite challenging especially with emphasis on quality and so little room for error and re-shoots and it was also my second major project where I wanted to try out new styles of lighting. The result of the hardwork is impressive and touching, and i'm glad I worked with the talented actors and crew members on this project.
