Director Statement

SHOWTIME is a self funded passion project that I worked on with my film industry friends. Over the course of two nights and lots of preparation before hand, we managed to make a great film. In post we have made several versions of the film- both for digital viewing and for cinema viewing. If accepted we would love the opportunity to play our movie with the cinema mix at its highest resolution. It would mean the world not just to myself, but to the cast and crew who worked so hard to make SHOWTIME a reality.
