"By making the viewer aware of the underlying mechanics behind telling a story, I try to balance the emotion brought on by the drama in the story itself with the tension experienced from the total awareness of the parts in motion. Art is tempered with the experience of real life, of breathing and feeling the floor beneath one's feet, of being aware of one's own thoughts."
