Director Statement

Hello! Thank you so much for checking out my film, “Dinner For Two”. This film is extremely personal to me in both a story sense and in the sense of me being able to pursue my passion for storytelling and filmmaking. After so many months of stagnant projects due to the pandemic, this film had numerous hurdles to cross in order to get the production going and I’m am so extremely proud that my team and I were able to bring this film to life and that I was able to tell this story that I have been wanting to tell. Please enjoy the story of a couple holding onto the remnants of marriage and the emotional and physical barriers that stand in their way. I hope you enjoy the chills and thrills of the film half as much as we had making it. Enjoy!
