Director Statement

If there’s any one bit of advice I can give aspiring creators, it’s don’t wait. Don’t wait for inspiration, the right crew, the fancy gear, the money, the time. Just make what you can now. I wish I had learned that earlier. The last 2 yrs I’ve made 79 videos. Some of them are even pretty darn good.
