Director Statement

This was a project that combined my love of several things into one. I love music, I had always wanted to film underwater, I love fantasy and gravitate towards love stories that end in hope. This is a story that focuses on a woman that had love, doubted it and had the courage to go after it again, despite any differences they may have had. It is my hope that viewers of this piece will find inspiration in knowing that love is love. It comes from everywhere.
