Director Statement

"Girls Night" is my last project and my most challenging one. I'm very proud of it even though the technical limitations. It's a very low budget film that I wrote, directed, filmed and edited. Everything you see in here is my pure vision. My inspirations are mainly Wong Kar-Wai for the cinematography, Wes Craven for directing actors and Osgood Perkins for the pacing and atmosphere.
I'm actually right now working on its sequel...
