Director Biography - Allen MJ

My actual name is "Sreenadh Boggu Narayanappa," and my screen name is Allen MJ. I am an independent Director and Writer from Southeast Asia (India), and I've been living in the UK for 44 months. Movies are my life, and JK Rowling is the woman who inspired me a lot. Directors including David Lynch, Chris Nolan, Andrei Tarkovsky, Kubrick, Hitchcock, Chaplin, and many others are my dream pillars.

I made this short with my savings, but I only saved up £4500 working in the kebab shop and McDonald's, and I spent all of it on this short. I hope you understand the pain I've gone through. Thank you.

Director Statement

I made this film to show how beautiful human life is and how we see all our future selves in other people but don't notice it. The way life gives us everything and we don't refuse a single thing that time gives, and that particular beauty of time, will be some of the most beautiful memories that we ever have. Life is beautiful, and it only comes once. Enjoy everything in life, whatever it is; it's a golden memory for us and our loved ones.

I spent almost 3 years on the script to make it as beautiful as one golden day in a beautiful human's life.
