Director Statement

“The camera angles throughout the film “Breakdown” aren’t my favorites nor anybody else’s. But, they truly depend on the content of the above film.”
“I have to imply the same thing about the lively raw materials who give breath to the characters in the film.”
“I chose a creative cameraman who studies the script in deep instead of a person who murmurs only about the visual beauty and picture quality”.
