I fell in love with books at a very young age. At the age of 3, my Saturdays were typically spent at a local bookstore. Growing up in the 80s, however, it wasn’t until my teenage years that I got to discover my love for movies. The daydreamer in me loves them both for different reasons. I think there is a beauty in the way a book triggers one part of your imagination to picture what’s not visible solely through the written words — things like the shape of a character’s lips or the way he balls his fists in his own way, while a movie triggers another part of your imagination to try to understand the non-descriptive thoughts and motives behind a character’s visible action. A movie script builds a bridge between these two houses of imagination, and to me there’s something purely magical about that. This is why I have always wanted to make a movie for as long as I can remember.
