Director Statement

This film idea was on my mind for over a year and I'm so excited to have gone through and made it. This film was not made for any assignment so I had no idea if I was ever actually going to make it but taking the time to just throw myself into the process was amazing. This film took a lot of courage and dedication for me to follow through with my ideas. I hope people enjoy this film and walk away smiling. That's what life is about.
