I've always wanted to create an action/adventure/fantasy inspired by all the movies, novels and animated content I've loved since childhood. I also wanted to explore themes of prejudice, hypocrisy and staying in one's comfort zone - all of which are issues that have come to concern and fascinate me as an adult. Making this film was an opportunity to fulfill these 2 artistic goals of mine and it's a privilidge to finally share it with you.
