Director Statement

My aim with Mr Lonesome was to take the expectation of a typical student film and issue related cliche film and blow that out of the water by giving the audience the unexpected. Instead, the audience get a film about true hope and a visually pleasing experience from its unique shooting style. It was a delight to be able to raise so much money for a local charity on top of all this. That really was the cherry on top!
