Director Statement

When I started thinking of the film, I was adapting a story about a supernatural detective. I soon realized my own story was trying to come out facing my own past and childhood. In dealing with all that, imagery from my favorite movies of the 1980s came to the forefront. With such a personal project, I chose to assume total responsibility for many aspects of the movie, including acting, cinematography, sound design, and post-production.
