Bio:
Amateur filmmaker based in North Texas. Big fan of world cinema and movie culture in general. Confirmed film junkie. "Cinema is ,or should be, more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods or feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later. After you've walked out of the theatre, maybe the next day or a week later, maybe without ever actually realizing it, you somehow get what the filmmaker has been trying to tell you." - Stanley Kubrick "Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede; our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal; our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonize; and our music will linger and finally overwhelm, because it will have a context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory... but our memory will neither blur nor fade" - F.W. Marnau
