There are so many, but I’d have to say it was the people that made AFTRS so special. Most of us had full time jobs so it was really special to spend our evenings together, knowing we were pushing towards our dreams.



Premiering my short film at Clermont Ferrand was pretty insane. I’d never shown anything to such a large audience before and it reminded me of why we pursue filmmaking – it’s about self-expression but it’s also for the people.
