Director Statement

The making and completion of "Immortal Game" has been an arduous journey. When working on a tight budget and doing a film out of pure love...promises and favors can dematerialize. I came very close to scrapping the film completely, after spending a few years in post-production, trying to get the perfect original visual effects, and a fitting score to bring the story to life. This is particularly the case when resources are tight, and you have to find a way through the limitations. I asked myself why this particular film was so important. The pursuit of perfection and not settling for mediocrity was daunting and time-consuming. The burning desire, though, to delve deep inside and produce something that I could ultimately feel proud of kept me going. So I did the color, visual effects and sound score all by myself...totally original score, which I had never done. Boy that was a learning curve! I was super busy working on other projects over the last few years, so it was always on the back burner. Then...Covid happened. I finally had time to finish it and am very proud of what we all accomplished. Thank you and I hope you enjoy "Immortal Game"!
