Director Statement

In an effort to serve as a contrast to creative works highlighting diverse people via common tropes, a Thankless Production will look to tip the scale by exploring more non-traditional subjects and genres. We will advance topics promoting mental health, spirituality and love. It’s important to me to create content that serves as a signal to the world that while we like to use film to acknowledge our feeble humanity there is something far greater at play. We will explore worlds that reveal the 4th dimension and the God beckoning to all of us. We will lift our communities and be a beacon of hope and inspiration.
