Director Statement

Epic is a cinematic-narrative expression of my personality. I believe in making every moment of life exciting and epic. Whether that be through hilarious, slow-motion comedy, or gut-wrenching, emotional narratives that leave somebody thinking about being bigger than themselves. "Epic" represents a personal journey of overcoming struggles with the help of close friends and doing something EPIC.
