Director Statement

"As I prepare to finish my college career, this is my last chance to make a film with these kinds of resources at my fingertips. As such, I want to use the resources available to me to create something personal, something that addresses themes and ideas that carry a deeper meaning for me. ‘WHITE NOISE’ is based loosely around true events from my own experiences. I believe that my intimate connection to these experiences will bring a level of authenticity to the film that will bolster its ability to raise awareness and prevent issues like suicide. There still exists a stigma in society surrounding suicide, and more tragically, the victims of suicide and their families. With this film, I hope to be able to shed some light on the realities of life and death as they relate to the themes expressed in this film. My time as a film major has been both instructive and geuinely enjoyable. Four years of education and training have given me the sort of confidence I need to realize this film to its full potential."
