Filmmaker’s statement

I was fortunate enough to direct 10 of 13 episodes of Rakhee Morzaria’s Note To Self. When I read the scripts for season one, I knew I had to be a part of the series.

Rakhee has a real gift for addressing potentially uncomfortable themes of identity and belonging with such humour and lightheartedness. We had incredible actors involved and the crew was a joy to collaborate with.

It was a wonderful experience to work with such talent and we’re grateful to CBC Comedy for providing a platform for series like ours.
