It's just both inside and out I find infinite reason to be awake and engaged. My enthusiasm annoys the cool kids. I've been teased about my curiosity. I want to meet everyone, their points of view and their histories.
Some of the reasons I got into filmmaking are to be able to invest myself in my wide ranging interests and people. Empathy. And the hope it will carry me to far-off places.
But the most significant reason: it's my best shot at contributing the greatest. Stories saved my life and i try to make my life the most positive thing it can be. So I teach myself; I practice. I work all the time. And because I hardly speak English. My ideas come across better in cinema, I think.
