Director Statement

My goal for the short film "Perpetual" is to create a difficult piece in order to allow my editing skills to shine through. With my lack of knowledge when it comes to filming, I challenged myself to improve every take I filmed. If there were some shots that lacked quality throughout the whole scene but still had potential I kept the footage in order to create something interesting to better my editing skills.
