Director Statement

This was my first attempt at directing one of my own movies and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The actors were fantastic and so helpful. My DOP was excellent. It was a lot of hard work but well worth it. We had an extremely low budget of R30k so our DOP handled the camera, sound and lighting. I handled the directing and everything else.
