Director Statement

'A Foray into Romantic Fiction' is the second film I have produced and directed. This one was made on Zoom, so only took a couple of hours to film but I am inclined to make things complicated for myself and, with all the dream sequences, post-production was quite a challenge to my novice editing skills.
