I have been a storyteller since I was 7 years old. I told never-ending stories that would annoy the crap out of my siblings.
There has always been little factors that have led to this passion of mine and I haven't realized it since now.
I started film-making (for real) in middle school. The content wasn't very good, but I knew that if I kept at it, maybe one day it will satisfy. I was and still am a one-man team. Not because I don't have people to hire as my crew but because I enjoy every aspect of making movies. I like keeping my style in my creative control, even if that means that I am a one-man team.
It's not a hobby, it's a lifestyle. Filmmakers, photographers, painters all have one thing in common. They all capture life to share with others who might not be able to live the experience. This is a lifestyle. It changes your perspective and makes you appreciate life as it is. This is why I make movies.
