Director Statement

I intend to tell a powerful story that so many of us are conflicted with - Religion, Spirituality and Faith. Everyone knows the story of baby Jesus born in a manger, meek and mild. This story does involve Jesus, but not the way you expect. It may make some smile and others cringe but surely everyone will be impacted.

I would say that my story is very nuanced and as such, it requires careful attention to detail to bring it forward to screen. This film is not a run-of-the mill regular and the performance of the talent is very important. I feel that as the director, I can optimally guide that story through the talent and a committed crew to produce a film that we can all be proud of.
