Director Statement

I have always been fascinated by classic romantic comedy and I wanted to bring the lovable 90s feel back to modern cinema. I have been interested in what it means to have control of your destiny. behind my humorous writing, I wanted to make a film that emphasizes the power of choice and self-made opportunity. I believe movies are an escape that never leaves you. I am thankful for my cast, crew, professors, friends, and family for supporting my dream as a filmmaker.
