Director Statement

I want to envision films that open a narrative dialogue from a new industry eye. I want to tell stories and showcase talent that may never get that opportunity they need. Making this film I have been fortunate to work with so many different people from young to old to overseas to local. I gained friendships with my cast and crew and with a special bond on our Editorial Consultant Nelson Tracey who has worked on many projects big and small in the industry and without him I would never even understand the editing process that goes into making a film.
