Director Statement

Telling stories and collaborating with actors, writers, artists and technicians is an privilege every time I step on a set and it's important to me that we bond as a temporary family and make that set our home for the next 12 to 14 hours of the day. Finding the right shot to help move the story forward is part of the fun as much as it is a responsibility. At the end of the day, it's our job as directors to elicit a response from the audience whether it be to get them to laugh, or shriek or smile or cry, but hopefully, if we've done our job right, they will be moved by the film in some way and comment on it and it will stay with them for just a while.
