Director Statement

As a student with aspirations to one-day direct for feature films and television, I strongly believe in pursuing my dreams- no matter how scary or uncertain the path to reach them. I feel that people are often afraid to pursue their dreams due to fears that they may not reach them. I hope that Conveyor Belt will encourage my audience to take chances, and ultimately follow their dreams.

Developing and creating compelling projects is what draws me so strongly to the narrative medium. Filmmaking has taught me invaluable skills about myself and the various character around me that fill this world, and I hope to use those skills to better understand the human element, and elicit it in all of my future work.
