Director Statement

I've been creating promotional films for my vocal groups since 2003 and it hasn't been a huge leap to focus on making full-length features. My fascination has always been with landscape and how we relate to it with an emphasis on music. In a world where we can create any image from a text prompt, I try and keep my films as real as possible.
