“It’s my core belief that any endeavor one undertakes in life wether it be starting a company like Virgin, Apple, Amazon or making a movie you must have passion for your work. This belief is my fuel that has kept me refining my skills.
Stories can change our lives, sometimes. The ones we read, and the ones we write. I love making stories, whether as commercials, short stories or screenplays.
I strive to deliver a universal language independent of religion or culture. My way of creating films that evoke emotions in a short time span by the use of images and symbols creating compelling visualizations that show indirectly what you are trying to to say. Harnessing the film’s visual power as a “language” to influence the audience’s mood and emotions.
Movies for me is not something we observe. Movies are something we step into and brings us the understanding and sensibility to realize that identification has nothing to do with who we are in real life. It has everything to do with emotions.”
