Director Statement

I love filmmaking, I love music and sound. I feel passionate for film and I want to create my own way of filmmaking thinking from a sound perspective. After my first experience as a director and writer, I've decided to do a PhD in Film by creative practice. I aim to develop a new kind of directing that would consider points of audition as something as important as camera shots.
