Director Statement

My outlook on film and art is to create what you enjoy. While meaning can be found in all art, you do not always have to create for meaning. Meaning is subjective to all, and it is an individual experience. Sometimes, you can create for fun or just to have a laugh. How others perceive your art is not up to you, so that it why it is important to follow your heart and soul, and choose joy above all.
