Director Statement

I'm super excited to release NEGUS into the world. A story filled with passion, love, lost, and redemption. Inspired by Plato's Allegory of a cave-- A story that has haunted me since I first picked it up years ago. I'm consumed by the idea of truth, and running away from what is obvious. NEGUS. AN ALLEGORY OF A CAVE picks up with my lead who fears what it would be like to open his heart again, after it was violently shut, years ago. I feel passionate about this, and the story I have orchestrated. I hope you are too!
