Director Statement

Filmmaking has always been a part of my life since my childhood days of making skateboard videos, falling in love more and more with being behind the lens as the years flew past. My decision to dedicate my life to the craft however was twofold. First, it came down to one timely intermediate school excursion as we were taken to the cinema to watch what would become my one of my most beloved documentaries, March of the Penguins (Jacquet, 2005). I was dumbfounded by how a film managed to provoke and emotionally sway me so drastically. It was then my passion for narrative flourished. Second, we were tasked with community work attached to our final year of senior schooling. I decided to produce a documentary exploring the teacher’s reception of the students. Screening at our graduation lunch, tears and an uproarious response followed the film. It was at that exact moment, the euphoria of realising how I was able to influence in such a way that made me understand there is nothing else in this life I would rather do – to simply tell stories worth telling.
