Director Statement

I created AnonMan because I am a fan of suspense thrillers, and I love telling stories. AnonMan is an old-school thriller designed to incite curiosity in the audience and make them active participants. They must pay attention, nothing is spoon-fed, and mystery is the feeling I want the audience to leave the theater with.

The most important genre of all American literature and art is the Suspense Thriller.

Thrillers are morality tales. Cautionary tales...that warn us to think twice before making a fatal mistake. And that mistake is selling our souls. Sounds clichéd, but true. The only thing we have in this life of any real value is our soul. When you sell that, there's nothing left.

Why do people sell it? Money, fame, lust, etc. There are more reasons than souls to sell. And what are the repercussions? Dreams become nightmares.

Suspense Thrillers will never go out of style so long as people have problems. A betrayal of one's beliefs and morals is the universal quandary that everyone can relate to...self-imposed or not. Thrillers reinforce a moral truth: you only get one soul. Protect it. Nurture it. Embrace it. No one can take it from you...unless you let them.
