Director Statement

Be creative. Be working. Be nice:)
I enjoy coming-of age and idealistic romantic comedies though, science fiction is the best. The resourcefulness and problem-solving it takes to depict fantasy cinema is daunting, but it’s the decisions based on character and conflict that make even the most primitive visual effects timeless. My favorite fantasy films vividly depict the hierarchy of existence within our world or Afro-futurist perspectives. Sci-fi creators are tasked to conceptualize future extremisms while understanding our past in order to submerge viewers inside the best and worst of our capabilities. This propels us to the next era. I love the excitement fellow science fiction fans display when we recognize each other and chat. My films are a fulfilling experience from development to exhibition for everyone. Federation Temple, shows a priest’s arrogance dissolving his world. Child:Indigo features two evolved, interracial sisters finding confidence in their special abilities that have made them outlaws in a militarized planet. These stories convey kindness to yourself, knowing yourself, believing in your uniqueness, and being good for goodness sake.
