Director Statement

Dreamer's Journey was the final 'calling card' film I had the privilege of creating during my undergrad at film school. Dreamer's Journey was filmed in six days with a student level budget($3.5k CAD), as this film was originally created for a 'Senior Project' class I was registered in while finishing my undergrad in film school. This film is a true passion project in every sense of the word, and the phenomenal dedication from the cast & crew is captured in the very essence of this film. We hope you enjoy our madness,
thank you.
