I like to take time to think about things and understand different perspectives, but even though I can never know for sure what life is in someone else's shoes, filmmaking is the closest thing we have to sharing perspective.
To frame an image that carries emotion results in the creation of a different level of connection. A connection so personal and powerful only viewers understand in their own individual interpretation.
After watching films and being left with such connection I knew that's what I wanted to do. Hopping on a plane wasn't easy, but I'm glad I put myself in a position to be constantly challenged and outside my comfort zone.
