Director Statement

It was interesting being director while also having so many different roles. I played the main character, I was producer, I worked alongside my videographer, I danced, I played guitar, I was the narrator, it was so many things I did. So I had to balance out directing my other actors and models, working with the videographer, and being able to work with myself as well. I loved getting the chance to see my vision come to life and the opportunity to work and meet so many talented individuals and creatives.
