About this submission

I'm still trying to navigate my own depression and anxiety, making this film was an attempt to understand what helps me and what could potentially help others. It also is in some ways a love letter to my dog. Due to the pandemic, aspects of filmmaking proved to be more difficult, i.e. finding talent, locations, lighting, etc. But making this with my spouse has been a part of the healing process for me.

I grew up in a latino household and I want to tell stories that are observational and layered. I'm interested in writing and directing with the hopes of telling stories that feel personal to myself. Currently working on a handful of short and feature films, practicing as much as I can to develop and understand the cinematic language.
