Director Statement

The Girl In The Yellow Dress was my first big undertaking. It was my first time participating in the 48 Hour Film Challenge, and my first time directing a crew of about 20. It was a strange and beautiful process, and I am so happy with the result. This film features a New Orleans icon: the Ghost Tour Guide.
I am lucky enough to be friends with several ghost tour guides, and they are all people with big aspirations, but they also hold some superstitions that are fundamental to their very being. I am happy to have told a small story from that life.
