New San Antonio Film Society Board Member

This was truly unexpected and a blessing. I came back to San Antonio in late 2014 and have worked for 5 years to make a name for myself. The fact that I was asked to join that exclusive circle was very moving. In a way, it has validated a lot of the hard work I put in to be a driving force in our film community. It’s official now.

This was a picture I made back in 2014 before Disney’s live action version in 2017. Mostly inspired by love of horror video games like “Outlast.” All in all, a very solid enchanting little film. The poetry, which was originally written for the stage, is spoken marvelously by Claire. Originally a proof of concept for a much larger piece. Excited that a new audience welcomed it with open arms. Even more excited that both Fidel Ruiz-Healy and I got to stand up there with first place rankings at the end of the film slam. Great filmmaker.

What a year, all of which culminated to this distinction. And to learn that I would receive this on the same day that I premiere a new work (Rio Secado) in front of a San Antonio audience. The amount of people who voted for me is something I will never forget. Very much appreciated. I just hope I can keep making pictures truthfully and passionately.
