I look for a way to reveal more in film. Using character, human experiences, music, text, imagery, and feeling, I aim to tell and craft stories. If I can find ways of giving more voice, more representation, and also develop closer intimacy to really seeing someone , it seems like a gold mine worth pursuing.
