Director Statement

This film has been the finalisation of my film making degree. I was given the honour of using the Arri Alexa LF for this project and have proudly used it to produce my best work so far along with my group who also helped massively, with the Producing, Editing and Production Design. My favourite thing about this film is the minimal characters and how important each one is to the plot as well as the riveting visuals and score that enhances my vision.
