Hi, first of all, congratulations, you are one of the winners of the Europe Film Festival U.K. What do you feel.?

I am very honored that Jack’s Shed won Best Actress in the jury Special Awards. I am happy that our talent is recognized, and I look forward to creating more movies.

What gave you the inspiration to write and direct this story.?

Jack’s Shed was filmed unscripted. I actually did not prepare myself ahead of time when we decided to film that weekend. The story just came to my head while filming Jack’s Shed. One of the co-producer calls me “the last-minute director” because I always come up with amazing stories at the last minute while filming. LOL.

What skills do you need to be a filmmaker/actor/actress.?

I can only speak from my own experience as a filmmaker, stuntman, and actor. I never went to college to study filming, but I always had a passion for creating movies and telling stories. I have always taught myself about filming and directing. No matter what your talent is in the film industry, you have to love what you do. My love and passion for directing films and creating stories are what make me good at what I do. I enjoy being creative to get the job done.

What advice would you give someone who wanted to have a life creating film/acting.?

Never give up, no matter what your goal or dream is in the film industry. Do not let rejection or negativity stop you from pursuing your dream. Continue to work hard on your crafts, believe in your dreams, and I am going to say it again “Never give up”.

Is filmmaking/acting a good career choice?

Filmmaking/ acting is a good career choice if you love the art of filming. Creating movies has always been my main focus to be able to tell stories that people will enjoy watching.
