Director Statement

August 30th & September 1st were two of the most impactful days for my life. August 30th, I learned that one of my largest inspirations, Wes Craven, had passed away. September 1st, I was informed by iHorror they were putting together a compilation film of independent horror films for their film "Bye Felicia". Asking the contributors to include only two things in their films; "to have a character named Felicia" and "to end the film with BYE FELICIA". After multiple people contacted me about submitting an entry, I finally made the decision to enter.

When Craven passed away, it devastated me. He has been one of the strongest driving factors of my imagination since I was kid. "SCREAM" changed my perception on how a story should be told and ignited my interest in the psyche of the female protagonist. Craven and Kevin Williamson changed my life with a single movie. After learning that Craven died, I told myself I was going to dedicate my next film to him and not just by adding his name onto the credits, but by arranging the story in a way that I think
he would have enjoyed and referencing the very film that sparked that story writing in me as a kid; "Scream". In "Scream" they're all almost entirely aware they're in a horror film, but then the idea hit me, what if they were not only aware, but it was for certain that's all it was? And here we have "Omnipotence".

I not only wanted to submit this to iHorror's compilation film, but I wanted to share it with everyone on the internet. All of the horror fans that felt that loss in the world the moment he passed. Our nightmares will be always be less fun not having him with us. I hate everyday that I couldn't have had one conversation with him... but in a way, I think this film is the closest I'll ever get to that.
