Director Statement

“My to make you hear, to make you feel - and, above all, to make you see. That is all, and it is everything.” (Joseph Conrad)
This all started when I discovered my love for emotions. I love when people express different emotions and I want to make people experience them. I want to make people laugh, make them cry, make them think. I want to make people FEEL. That is what I want to do in this life.
Ever since I was a kid, my imagination has been my strength. I wanted to create stories that people can relate to and sympathize with the characters. I could use my talent for Music and Writing for that purpose. I realized that this would be my contribution to humanity and my destiny.
I am just as much a writer as I am a singer. I write my songs. My songs are my stories. This is my language to communicate with this World. Before writing the screenplay for my film, my desire was to combine all of my abilities into one place. I wanted to breathe life to my vision by utilizing the music that I love to write to tell a story that I felt passionate about. This is how the idea for the film came about. To create a story from my song. The song that I wrote was titled “My Voice”. I wrote that song about the inner voice to inspire people knowing that someday I would make a film about it. Eventually it happened because I felt so inspired, motivated and eager to deliver my message. I made this film to the memory of my father who passed away in 2016. The message is the most important part of any project that I work on.
I want to give others hope and inspiration. I truly believe that we all have a power (light) inside of us. In our life, fear and negativity can be present and we are the only ones who can control it because in our heart, we know that we are part of the something bigger and more powerful. There is always better version of us and we should always seek that within ourselves.
We have to face our fear, look right into its eyes - and we will overcome it! 
 Everyone will be able to relate to this film because inside we are all the same regardless of belief system, nationality, gender etc etc. We all have the light. All we have to do, is find who we are and to believe in ourselves.
