Director Statement

I toke a theatre class where I met a girl I liked.
Looking for an excuse to connect with her I tried to write a nice and romantic short film that she would like to star in. It didn’t work out with her, but the short film remained. With Carlo's help I was able to improve the idea and make it my first short-film.
