Director Statement

When I was walking to the downtown in Portland, I saw a man with an umbrella with a woman. Probably they are a couple or friend each other, but when I see that, it reminded me of an image. It was the image of a man giving an umbrella in front of a woman who was worried about having no umbrella. I wanted to put the scene in, so I came up with a very simple story, and it was 'Sun Shower.' The filming of the movie was very difficult. It didn't rain properly, and it was hard because I had to finish filming in two days. But eventually the movie was finished, and it was still meaningful that my first short film came out. I want to thank and speak to the producer, actor, and all the staff for helping me with my poor skills.
