My work investigates the relationship between fiction and documentary filmmaking; their connection with one another as well as differences in narrative, image and form and the potential affect on the audience. I experiment with different aesthetics that can transform the content to try to explore new territories of the so called ‘seventh art’.

My creative practice is concerned with the investigation of what actually constitutes as a present moment within cinema. According to legendary Soviet director Andrei Tarkovsky, cinema “is a mosaic made up of time.”

Within my filmmaking I am involved with creative experimentation to capture the unique qualities of fiction and documentary, using an amalgam of narrative, camera and editing techniques. In my film The Inland Sea I was most interested in exploring the relationship struggles of a present moment of external and internal forces. As humans we are so preoccupied with thoughts, sensations and feelings, can we say that the present exists at all?
