Director Biography - Alina Gotcherian

Using the buck shot approach to filmmaking, Jean Bernard is simply throwing himself onto the wall until he sticks. Tired of playing stereotypes and understanding that he, like everyone else on the planet, has a finite number of years to live, he knows that his acting future lies in the ability to write and produce your own work!

With his friend Alina Gotcherian, Jean Bernard was able to realize his dream of making the lowest budget anti-romance film in history.
