Director Statement

As a man of faith, this project was a huge testimony of what can be achieved when you believe. Being my first film and taking on the roles of Writer/Director/Producer I am without any doubt that this is the start to a new venture and career choice.

In this film we follow the attempts of two siblings who chase their own separate and unrealistic dreams in an attempt to make it big. But as for one, the desperation to seek the other's approval influences an extreme and consequently deadly measure. In life we often find ourselves short of support from those we consider our closest of loved ones which often leaves us in a state of anxiety, thus forcing contemplation of immoral or even dangerous methods in the attempt to proving ourselves.

Our characters demonstrate the different roles of innocence that commonly lead in the partaking of potentially hazardous events like a simple crush, finding closure or even the pursuit of a better life. None to which are deserving of horrible repercussions, however the laws of life cannot be bias simply because one's intentions are pure.

This film was a great opportunity to showcase our original music and advance into the film industry. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with a cast who all made their debuts as actors and music artists in this film. We all took on multiple roles from the talent to camera operator and stagehands. I am also pleased to share that this film was 100% shot using the IPhone 11. Outside of added effects and editing in post, the IPhone 11 usage proved to be one serious piece of equipment. I am certain that many who part in this film have found a new confidence and interest in the film industry which I am excited to see what lies ahead for all of them.

In achieving my goal in creating this film and providing a home for my songs in the soundtrack fills me with a sense of completion and secures the thought of continuing to create more films and music. I already have multiple projects due for take off thanks to the success of completing this project. Thank you Lord for your presence in this journey and may all who are here be blessed and find their joys!
