Director Statement

I believe in saving money and working hard when making a film. I don't think it should be about the amount of money you spend during production, but rather the amount of time and effort put into the project. If it is truly your passion, you can make a film without a budget, which is what I think many other filmmakers will disagree with me on.

Support is key to the success of a project, and unfortunately, many young and new filmmakers do not have the support system in place from family, friends, etc... I went through the same thing, with people around me constantly telling me that I would fail. Do not listen to them. Your biggest supporter will always be by your side, through the ups and downs. That supporter is yourself and will continue to support you if you continue to strive for greatness and believe in yourself.
