Director Statement

"7" is a film about luck... and working in the film industry, it comes down a lot to working hard, who you know, and LUCK! Coming from London, Los Angeles was always the aspiration for filmmaking. And I was lucky enough (See!) to meet Paul Howard, a Los Angeles Producer, Actor, Writer, Director! On a planned trip to visit LA, Paul had mentioned that we should work together on a short film set in the City of Angels. We didn't have much cash, and we didn't have much time... but we set out to make it happen. A fun script, some awesome locations, a superb team and only $100 later... we made "7".

I think it's a truly great film that hopefully people enjoy! It's short, snappy but holds a strong message! You never know where luck might lead you.
