“THAT’S LIFE” DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

In 2009 I joined the Military, and for sure this added on to the various causes I discovered myself coping with my very own private demons each day. As soon as I got here house from the Military is after I determined to turn out to be a filmmaker.

I grew to become a filmmaker and a motive I get pleasure from movies, is the escape it permits me to have. Every time my thoughts feels overloaded with ideas and and concepts, nothing feels higher than turning them right into a story or an concept, after which being a part of the method that brings that concept to fruition.

I used to be sitting on the seashore escaping the quick paced actuality that’s my life and job in Leisure, It was then I noticed I felt at peace and that to some that is all they need, a peaceable place to flee their demons. It was that day on that seashore I wrote “That’s Life”

I at all times am making an attempt to problem myself as a filmmaker with new concepts and new methods to make myself a greater storyteller. This by far was my most difficult, not attributable to a technical degree of problem, however the emotional problem of filming a topic that inside itself could be very exhausting. Not solely to myself, however to many viewers.

My aim with this was to ensure I used to be in a position to get throughout what battling your personal demons and being depressed felt like, no less than to me. I knew it will be a really private challenge and I needed to do not forget that this was my story to inform, so I attempted to not let the thought of what others might imagine take away from my course of. I needed to indicate in a artistic method what generally can undergo my thoughts and I’m positive the minds of many others. I took quite a lot of inspiration from David Lynch. I get pleasure from his work as a result of he jogs my memory after I’m watching something he creates, that he did this as a result of he needed to, and folks might not at all times perceive it or relate to it, however they’ll nonetheless sit again an get pleasure from it. Which is precisely what needed to do when making this quick. I hope folks will perceive it, and if not, hopefully they’ve a hell of a journey no less than watching.

Coping with despair is one thing I don’t speak about to mates, household, and even talk about on social media, the place recently it has been dropped at gentle in some ways. So making “That’s Life” was my method of speaking about it. Exhibiting this Demon and the alternative ways it will possibly get in the way in which of day by day actions was my method of taking up a subject that has been a part of my entire life.

I stored this manufacturing very small attributable to it’s nature and the very fact I actually needed to concentrate on getting the story precisely how I needed to painting it. I selected to share this expertise with individuals who not solely understood the place I used to be coming from, however might respect my ardour and method in the direction of all of it. We filmed “That’s Life” in a single evening. I made positive I talked individually to each actor and crew on set and made positive they had been comfy with the subject material. Making that reference to everybody not solely helped us all be on the identical web page, however actually helped with the method of filming one thing that may be exhausting for folks to observe, not to mention create. One factor I cherished about this challenge is that each one that was a part of it was there for the fitting causes and believed in me and my story. This alone made it straightforward and truly enjoyable to shoot.

My aim is to have audiences take away from this quick what it means to them. I feel many individuals will interpretive a number of issues after watching and that was my intention. Though, I hope one factor all viewers will agree on is the message it’s meant to deliver, which is that you’re not alone, battling demons in any type will be terrifying, and most significantly there are people who find themselves there to assist, hear, and are battling their very own demons too.

​A kind of folks being myself.
