Director Statement

Self studying film has lead to a lot of experimentation, Tide of Ghosts is a continuation of this. In the film, I wanted to experiment with character connection, focusing more on characters beyond the overall story.

In turn, having a theme and letting the characters write the story for us.

Tide of Ghosts is an exploration in emotional connection between characters which was co-written with lead actor John Black to explore fears, death and friendship and how these are affected in times of complex and emotional decision making.
