"Directing is a way for me to take the madness in my head and make it into something valuable. My aim is to show the absurdity of life to make make us reflect on our own desires and motivations. I love working with actors and the good vibes that are in the air while we’re on set.
Hum our is an important part of my work because I believe that if something puts a smile on your face, you'll be interested in the message we're spreading..."
