Director Statement

I've begun to care more about the project for the project's sake as opposed to making films for others. Meaning The Greensman was a film I made for myself...well, me and in honor of my late Grandfather.

At the beginning of this year I set out to write/direct/produce four short subject films so as to keep myself limber as a filmmaker but also to just have fun doing the thing I love most in life. Honestly making films is my favorite thing to do with my time/life so what better reason to force yourself to make 4 in a year.

The concept behind greensman is a silly one that occured to me over a decade ago while I was on set and it's always stuck with me.

So as part of my 4 in the year, I finally decided it was time to let this story out so it can live in the world.

I honestly believe that what occurs in this film actually happens irl.

Thanks for reading.
