Director Statement

ZACH & MYHRE was totally a God project. He directed me every step of the way when I literally had no intention of making this movie. It started with Zach's Aunt Rebecca asking me to be part of a prayer circle for Zach. When I heard he wasn't expected to live and had a dream to be an actor, I jumped on it. We dedicated the film I was working on, 'Carded', to Zach. God said that wasn't enough and told me to get up and go interview my Hollywood filmmaker friends giving Zach words of encouragement. I did that and a video was put together. Again God told me it wasn't enough so long story short, I flew to Michigan and turned Zach into Superhero Zach to fight his nemesis MYHRE syndrome. The rest is history. This is a passion piece and still touches my heart every time I watch it. (SPOILER ALERT: Zach is still with us and lives to fight another day!)
