Director Statement

Liberating Love was an experimental production to test out my ability with new equipment. The Production process was a total of 1 week which seems really short.

Late November I had a conversation with Kris Scott the lead. Both of us being filmmakers we really wanted to create a simple story before Christmas. I had just recently binged watched all of Outlander and this simple but beautiful story formed in one night.

I was so energised by this story by the next night I was already creating a shot list.

To finalise. I am so please with the small team creating this small idea to become what it is today and also actress, Rebekah Copeland's first production as a crew member and I was beyond impressed with her as the role as a Production Assistant.
