Director’s statement | “My films are all about motion and having fun! I hope people are entertained and energized by all of my films. You can think of it like a ride at the amusement park or view it the same way you might view fireworks or abstract painting. The music is Disco Funk by AntipodeanWriter from Norman McLaren, Len Ley and Steve Woloshen were all great influences and inspiration for this work.”
