Director Biography - Kiera Benson

My name is Kiera Benson

I am 20 years old

Ever since I could remember, I have always had a passion for film.

I love coming up with new and creative ideas to bring to the table.

I am always interested in listening to what others have to say.

I like to just live in the moment, try and film some crazy things, and see what comes from it.

It never hurts to try.

If you fail, you cannot give up. You have to get back up on your feet and try and again. Even if that means trying a million times before you succeed.

I hope to be a part of the film industry one day... let me rephrase that. I KNOW I will be a part of the film industry one day.

I will continue to create until my passions are known my others.

Director Statement

This film was made for my video making class. Our assignment was to make a film with 17 shots only. No more no less. Of having someone tie their shoes... but I wanted to make it deeper than that. So that's when this film came into play.
