Director Statement

The goal behind creating this micro documentary was twofold: First to highlight everyday people in our community passionately working in their profession. Two, to create content within 48 hours. For a long time I made many excuses to not create content; things like, " I don't have the right equipment", "my skills aren't up to par", etc.. How would I ever know what equipment I will eventually need, or what skills I need to polish if I didn't start creating. This was the kick start I needed to begin my journey as a film maker.
