Director Statement

This film was my first narrative film coming back into Graduate school. I struggled deeply with my vision and what I wanted to share and how to go about making that idea into a visual concept. Ultimately it turned out that a life lesson after a recent relation¬ship experience brought to light a piece of informa-tion that I knew I was passionate regarding. It was time for me to tell as story about being who you really are, stripping away all the stunts, jokes, and gimmicks that we attempt growing up to impress people, and by being original great successes in life will shine through. My relationship with this person became such a strong foundation of who I was and how I expressed myself that when it ended suddenly I was burried in confusion and heartache. So, I wrote a coming of age story that brought that idea to its epitome. It may even seem overly direct by some means, but its one lesson that by some means we can always fail to learn the first time around. I hope to share that joyous feeling that it is when we find new love, but also share the cautionary tale of some of those pitfalls that we can find ourselves in when trying to impress that special somone. Endeavour becomes that playful joust of early romance in con¬nection to one’s own identity and self confidence.
