Director Statement

I have felt an almost kindred bond with the technology itself. Both of us, myself and the computer, were learning the art of filmcraft at the same time. I feel as though it is my life’s pursuit to continue this relationship, to break down the notion that studio-level cinematic quality can only be produced in a studio, and continue to explore the limitless possibilities afforded, by technology, to those who still believe in the Magic Store.
