Director Statement

One of the greatest things that has come out of film is genre. It places a set or rules and ideas in our heads that tell us what we should expect from the story and characters. Those guidelines offer an infinite number of creative possibilities when finding ways to tell a story through playing into the genre and by breaking the genres conventions. But only if in service to the story. The story is key, otherwise don't bother making a film.
