Director Statement


This is the most personal film I’ve ever made. As a former banker who went into that profession to make a living, I left after several years to become the filmmaker/actor I was meant to be. It is always a struggle to be an artist. There is little security and it is fraught with self-doubt. I now want to share my art with the world. I hope by doing so, other artists will be inspired to take the leap of faith and lead an artist’s life. The world needs us. This film features never before seen personally crafted artwork. I have put all my efforts into making a creative, fun and entertaining film. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your consideration.

Best wishes,

Tony Mouleart
