Director's Statement

The reason why I spend a large portion of my life making and watching movies is obvious: I love cinema. This has been true from as far back I can remember. Finding a compelling story to make a great film out of seemed very difficult for a long time. However, growing up, I realized that great stories exist everywhere. In everywhere I go, and in every person I meet, there is a great story to be told. And I learned that if one is observant and creative enough, he/she could make a great movie out of any subject, any person. It is a matter of how truthfully and well one does it. Thus, every movie I made is a creative amalgamation of what I have experienced and felt, filtered and told through my own perspective and thoughts. And it is my naive hope that my movies could encourage others to do the same: tell great stories that are filtered by their views.
