I have always believed in magic. From leprechauns, to waiting outside my mailbox for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, I have always felt that the world was so much more than what was in front of me. This awareness has not only opened my eyes to the world’s many secrets, but allowed me to find the magic in people as well: what brings people to life, what makes them happy, and what is the spark keeping them alive.
I feel that the universe has been guiding me towards filmmaking for a long time, opening up this world of wonder that I’ve been seeking throughout my life. In each of my films, I look to blend hyper-realism with a bit of magic to help give it a higher truth, and enhance the reality ten-fold. Through every death, every birth, every ounce of pain, magic has always been there behind the curtain. In a world where smartphones and superheroes are constant reminders that we are powerless beings, I want to show the opposite. I want to show people that this other world does exist, and it lies deep within themselves. I want to tell stories of everyday people who discover this, and empower the viewer to do the same. Now that I have found my magic, I believe it’s my job to show people that they can find it too.
