Director Statement

Like all successful creations, EVE is not the product of one director’s vision, but rather the harvest of inexorable collaborative compulsion. As co-authors, aerialist Jb Naufel, cinematographer Alex Naufel and myself made EVE as an obligation to a single creative spark. That’s often where the best work happens, in that vice grip of an idea that crashes artists together and will not relent until it becomes realized.
