INSPIRATION Acting and filmmaking is my life's passion and because of this I am immensely proud of the film roles and contribution to the film industry. I am a director who is inspired by living truthfully within a set of given circumstances and I am excited by neo-expressionist artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, I love to create films characterised by actors working Impulse to Impulse. My desire is to creature works of art by exploring artistic territoty but work’s that are also commercially viable. I always use my intuitive use of texture in scenes and incorporate a dynamic compositional tension using traditional filmmaking techniques.
