Director Statement

Plot Development is a first for me. I got to dip my toes into a genre I love so much. Crafting a crime/thriller in 9 minutes is a challenging feat. How do you bring your audience on a pulse-pounding mystery in such a short amount of time? It takes a big vision and the right people. I'm proud to present, Plot Development.
