Director Statement

The making of Tears In the Rain has been a sometimes arduous five-year journey. I had no idea what I was in for when production began one cold night in 2012, and I often wanted to give up. I came very close, in fact, spending years in post-prod trying to get the perfect original visual effects and fitting score to bring the story to life, can lead to fatigue. This is particularly the case when resources are tight, and you have to find a way through the limitations. I asked myself why this particular film was so important. The pursuit of perfection and not settling for mediocrity was daunting and time-consuming. The burning desire, though, to delve deep inside and produce something that I could ultimately feel proud of (and be enjoyed by fans the world over) kept me going.
