Director Statement

Like anyone else, I go to the movies to escape reality. A brief timeout from life to experience other worlds. A place where your imagination takes a front seat to enjoy the ride. However, what happens when that thrill of a ride breaks the fourth wall and you become apart of the show. Like something out of a movie. Now you’re the main character of your own story. Charged to investigate with curiosity as your sidekick. The camera as my weapon of choice. What to capture and how? This is my reality. With every frame I remind myself. It started at the movies.
