FILMMAKER

With Louis Leterrier,

Director of Now You See Me

With Marc Bienstock,

Producer of Split

Filmmaking is not just a job, not just a hobby. It's a way of life, a state of mind, a puzzle piece of your soul - without it you feel incomplete. If you fall in love with filmmaking, it's for life. You see movie ideas everywhere, live through screenplays in your sleep. Money does not matter. What matters is that you have a vision that no one sees besides you and your team, until one day you pour your heart and soul out onto that big screen and the world goes "Wow!" 

Putting together a film is incredibly difficult, time-consuming and stressful, but every time I dive into it again and again, because that feeling of euphoria when your idea becomes a reality, causes a whirlpool of emotions, changes hearts and minds, and your message is seen and felt by the world... that's when I believe I can fly!
