I have chosen the path of filmmaking because it's a way of connecting with others that completely aligns with the kind of person I am. I have never been great at communicating verbally. I fumble my words and often wonder if I got my point across. However, filmmaking gives me a more suitable way of doing it. Whether it's telling a story, covering an event, or just getting a message out to people, I can always communicate more effectively with my camera. Filmmaking gives me the option of taking my time, planning things out, analyzing the details, and telling the story in a way that resonates more powerfully than the words of my mouth.
I am inspired by great filmmakers because they constantly push me to create films that are better than what I could have made on my own.
Unplanned roadtrips inspire me because they present the possibility of seeing and experiencing things I've never known before.
People with a strong work ethic inspire me bc they model a very important (and often rare) character trait... one that I want to emulate.
