Director Statement

Whether I Am Here Or Not was my first formal production. I created this short film from scratch. I wrote a script on January and by February we started filming. Editing this on Avid Media Composer was a challenge for me because I wasn't familiar with that software. I am very proud of this short film, it gave me a small proof of what it is like in the real world. Definitely not an easy job, but definitely an enjoyable one and totally worth it!
