Director Statement

I'm an experimental filmmaker. I like to try different things and if it feels right, I am going to do it no matter how crazy it may seem. I make sound pictures and silent pictures, so it doesn't really matter what the medium calls for. I also like to work with really great music people when it is needed.

It was the most challenging film to this date. We shot half of it in San Francisco and filmed the other half in Los Angeles. We have such an amazing team.
