Age I’m 24. I was 23 when we made the film.

Inspiration I have no single inspiration. I’ve recently really enjoyed the streamlined storytelling and narrative efficiency of directors like Iñárritu and Jonze in their Birdman and Her respectively; I aspire to that kind of simplicity, beauty, power and humanity in everything I make, films and otherwise.

My Random Acts film in a sentenceSend Her Victorious is about an Islamaphobic drag queen, and challenges the preconception that sexual fluidity and liberalism go hand in hand.

My Random Acts experience in 3 words: stressful, frantic, satisfying.
