Director Statement

In UNBEKNOWNST, I sought to design a story to highlight the tragedy of the lack of communication between groups of people. And since this film examines the breakdown of dialogue between parties, I figured the most effective way to display this was to have the film itself be silent. My clear intentions were to craft a narrative that could only be fully understood if told from three different perspectives. If the series of events were told exclusively from one point of view, there would be a number of inaccurate assumptions that one could make about these characters. I looked at this film as an opportunity to explore a story from the bigger picture, seemingly singular instances which contributed to the chain of events as a whole.

This film was created to generate thoughts and discussions as to how we as individuals interact with either each other. This film, being my directorial debut, required a great deal of hard work and perseverance from everyone involved to see this project from its music video roots, to its fully realized film version, and I loved every minute of it. We hope you enjoy “Unbeknownst” as much as it was a pleasure making it.
