Film & Video

I have been making films, or else dreaming of making them, for as long as I can remember.  For my 7th birthday party, I made my friends memorise lines and perform in a short film that I then gave out as DVD loot-bags! Now, I work mostly with Super 8mm and dance films, but have begun to experiment with documentary and narrative as well.  My greatest artistic inspiration is Agnès Varda, whose self-motivated, down to earth, compassionate methods inspire me to think outside of the box.
