Director Statement

“I moved to Marina del Rey, California in May 2014, and soon after fell in love with this oceanside village with a population of just over 8,000 residents. Every evening I fall asleep to the sound of the sea lions barking at the moon. The sunset here is an extravagant nightly event, complete with cotton candy-colored clouds that hover just above the harbor. This film is an attempt to capture the experience of my succumbing to the poignant and potent beauty of MdR. My performance of my original song ‘Stranger Star’ is the soundtrack. My Marina is my debut short film.”
