Director Statement

In 2011, I was meditating on a beach during a tumultuous time in my life (long story short, I had no place to call home). My foundation was rocked. As I was sitting on the sand, staring out into the ocean, I had a Divine essence come in front of me, and 15 short films shot into my head, "Night" being one of them. I was inspired to start a production company, which was originally called "Violet Fire Productions". I had a vision of my cast and crew, walking on the beach. 2013, I shot the film with my producing partners (Allison Chaney and Erin Okamoto), and the company was changed to "Theophilus Films"... Talk about the power of manifestation with Divine guidance, I was working with Film LA, who assigned the location spot to me, not knowing where on the beach it would be. It was the same spot I meditated two years prior. And I saw my cast and crew walking ahead of me that day, the same people I saw in my vision. I was speechless and in awe. This film is very dear to me. Even though it wasn't about anyone. I was inspired by mini-events that have happened to me as well as other pals of mine when we were young and combined them together. I decided to let the story tell itself. It used to belong to us. Now it's a story that belongs to everyone.
