Director Statement

For over a decade I’ve dreamt about directing films but my fear kept me from doing something I absolutely loved. Now finally, I’m happy to introduce you to my directorial debut, “ACORN”.
I submit this film in hopes that you’ll come along the journey to experience this magical world where there are more questions asked and less answers given. A place where anything can be real if you believe it is.
