Director Statement

While attending a lunch with an astronaut at NASA’s Space Center Houston, I learned how space missions are classified and operate under military control. This revelation opened my imagination and informed the theme of the film.

Rumor from Ground Control is my first feature film. It’s been a life-changing experience working with such talented actors and crew, who made this project their passion.
