What is your project about?
My project, The Betrayal, is the story of two high school sweethearts who have been together for many years and how their relationship slowly starts to drift apart due to lack of communication and understanding from both sides.


What are your ambitions for your project?
I am planning to turn The Betrayal into a full length feature film and to have it play in theatres. This is overall my biggest ambition for the film.
Tell us something about your shooting - what pleasantly surprised you?
I was very happy with how good the natural lighting was at the location we chose. It looked beautiful on camera and saved us time and energy on lighting setup! I was also pleasantly surprised with how well the actors were able to express the emotions that I envisioned for the film. I was overall very happy with the shooting style I chose for the film. It turned out exactly how I envisioned it!


What group of spectators is your film targeted for?
The Betrayal is targeted toward people roughly between the ages of 20 and 35 who have been in long term relationships or are currently in long term relationships or are going through a breakup.

Why should distributors buy your film?
I believe that distributors should buy this film because it dives into deep topics that are hardly talked about in the public eye such as of the miscommunications and misunderstandings that often happen in long term relationships. I believe that this film will tap into the audience in a deep way that will leave a lasting impression.

How would you specify your work? What characterizes your film?
The themes of betrayal and heartache, the shocking moments, and the deep impact characterize my film

Why did you decide to become a filmmaker?
I decided to become a filmmaker because I love to tell stories and inspire and encourage people. I love to take people out of whatever they are going through and into a new world they can immerse themselves in.

Who is your role model?

What movies are your favorites and why?
My favorite movies are Forrest Gump, Grease, and Saving Private Ryan. These are my favorites because they each tell a story of the underdogs and the unexpected.

Where do you look for inspiration for your films?
Everyday life situations from my past, present, and possible future

Which topics interest you the most?
Sports, politics, and life

What do you consider your greatest achievement in your career?
My greatest achievement in my career so far is being able to bring my stories to life and winning awards for them

What do you consider most important about filming?
A good story and a good script are so important when it comes to filming because without a good script, you don't have a good film, and without a good story, you can't really inspire people.

 Which film technique in filming do you consider the best?
I think multicamera is the best film technique to use because you can get multiple angles and multiple shots done in a shorter amount of time. I use this technique for almost all of my films.


How would you rate / what is your opinion about current filmmaking?
I would rate current filmmaking a 7 out of 10 because I believe that a lot of productions use a lot of equipment that is unnecessary and take a lot of shots that are unnecessary and don't align with the plot.

What could disappoint you in a movie?
Bad character development. When the story doesn't give me enough background to be able to relate to the character or feel for the character, I find it hard to follow the character and the decisions they are making throughout the film because I don't feel an attachment to them.

Who supports you in your film career?
My team of creatives at my company A Greek God Entertainment LLC

Have you already visited any prestigious film festivals?
At the moment I haven't visited any prestigious film festivals yet, but I am looking forward to soon!
