Director Statement

As a filmmaker I have always been drawn to stories of the human condition. What makes us who we are. Why we do what we do and what makes us unique. In a nutshell, what makes us tick!
Hu.mans is an intimate one-camera documentary series showcasing the extra-ordinary stories of the ordinary people amongst us. How behind every face is a lies an amazing story of joy, sorrow, pain, love. A story we might be lucky to be privy to if only we bother to ask and listen.
