Director Statement

World of Cyan was my attempt at pushing my boundaries as a visual storyteller. The narrative has no dialogue so I needed to figure out how to get a story across to an audience using only the camera and editing techniques. The film was completed as a final project for my Digital Media and Politics class at the end of the 2016 semester. The project is a largely a comment on the status of both the republican and democratic parties.
