Director Statement

The film, When They Fell, initially started out as a class project but quickly turned into much more. Upon reading the script I knew I wanted to be the one to direct it. It posed a very unique challenge, direct an emotional love story with no dialog and no facial expressions. This only made making the film more fun as I got to work with the actors differently than I usually would. It made for a more fun energy on set. More than that though, the crew made this film. Without them, their ideas and their talent, this film wouldn't be what it is today. Making this movie was truly a great experience and my only hope is that you might also enjoy it.
