Director Statement

"I love moving images. There's just something about cinema that speaks to people on an emotional level, a visceral level. But cinema is more than just pretty images with beautiful
lighting and composition. It is like a dance between an actor and the camera, the pacing
between each beat and the rhythm in the editing. That's what Breathe is to me.
When I first read the script, I was immediately immersed into the story and I wanted to find out what happened to this woman. I needed to learn about her and her past. It is because of this feeling that I knew I had to be a part of it.
Our entire crew and talent gave their 100% during the shoot and the final product is a testimony to their efforts."
