Director Statement

Depth of Field is a statement over the representation of our contemporary society, and describes how people and opinions has been blurred and become no longer a reflection, but a projection of an altered reality. In order to deliver a powerful message in film, one must be confident, responsible and truthful over the material and the story. My BA in Film Practice at UAL: University of the Arts London has enhanced my senses as a filmmaker, and widened my awareness and sincerity with the stories I create. And it made me believe that filmmaking is a virtue. Depth of Field is a true to life project that talks about morality, justice, and war within journalism. I find it imperative to make this film now as a statement over media coverage and the world journalism today.
