When I was a young boy my father told me wild stories before bedtime. These tales could be of him hunting dinosaurs, fighting off pirates, or being chased by a rapid Sasquatch. Thanks to my father I have grown up with a vast imagination and a love of storytelling.
I love movies and TV for many reasons. Film and TV give the opportunity to visually illustrate a story to its full potential. It isn’t bound by the limits of time and space. Film is freedom. By writing and directing, I found the freedom to express myself. As a lover of film I have seen great stories told on the big screen. Those films have had a lasting impact on my life, much like my father, and have influenced me to pursue my own filmmaking.
I am a strong believer that film should be entertaining. I enjoy entertaining people, and it is just one reason why I make movies.
