Director Statement

With SOMEONE LIKES YOU I attempt to bring to light some of the themes of anxiety, loneliness and desire for connection as a result of social media. Inspired by an article I read about online dating scams, I wanted to crafting a story about this idea. I hope that it could be engaging.

SOMEONE LIKES YOU is also the second narrative film I've made as a SOLO FILMMAKER (WITHOUT ANY CREW). On my first solo film, UNSPOKEN, I was unsure if I could actually shoot a film by myself and was prepared to have to reshoot or even scrap the film altogether. Ironically, I found that I actually worked more efficiently and was a lot less anxious working solo than when I have had a crew to support me and I think I may have found a filmmaking process that I truly enjoy.

I have since learned from social media that there is a small "community" of solo filmmakers out there (#solofilmmaker #crewofone) who, like me, are telling intimate stories on a smaller scale. I am happy and proud to count myself among this group as I plan my next "solo film."
