Director Statement

KNIGHT was inspired by personal events in my own life. I wrote this script to hopefully comfort those who have lost loved ones in their lives. I wanted to express the notion that the people we lose are never really gone. They live through the many loving gifts they've shared with us during their time on this earth. My goal with this film is to show that the time and connection you share with the people you love will live on forever. They will never fade because we are a piece of them in this life. Because of this, they will be eternal residents in our hearts and in our dreams.
