musings

the moving image

I fell in love with the moving image as a child. I saw it as an escape from the world of the mundane rigors of school, homework, and bedtimes.

It was everything that my youth wanted to explore. From a man named Indiana, to a story that never ended, each frame acted as a window into a world far far away.

To say that I always wanted to make films though would be a farce. I loved the idea of expression more. Whether it was music, writing, or photography, I saw each medium as a way to channel my internal need to speak through my art.

Though, my need to speak didn’t necessarily mean I needed to be heard. To create was suffice.

In world where the norm is to be known as a multi-hyphenated artist of sorts, my film offering is nothing more than a mode of human expression and an opportunity to escape.
