Director Statement

Friend Zone was my second short film but the first thing that I directed that I did not write. It gave me great challenges that grew me up as a director.
I wanted to capture the real feelings of what it's like when people's relationships and hearts are on the line. Because a heart is nothing to be toyed with.
