Director Statement

Ever since I was little, film was a major part of my life. I can’t recall a single day that I wasn’t heading to the movies. The screen lighting up and your imagination taking over, it became evident that I wasn't just an avid moviegoer; I was a filmmaker.

Scorsese said that the most personal is the most creative. I stand by that, as The Ushers is a personal journey of the average dreamer. I was blessed to tell a story about my experiences working at a movie theater through this amazing cast. They believed in these characters so much and brought incredible chemistry to the screen. They made my dreams come to life.

My direction was simple; just be yourself and don't forget, you love movies so have fun amongst the drama.
