Director’s statement

Laura Cassis says:

“Entering filmmaking from a literary background, the appeal of the short film is much like the allure of the short story: condensed density.

The challenge I see before me as a short film, filmmaker, is to balance space, cinematography and dialogue without compromise to either. The commonality in my films thus far is that very intention and so even in their story differences, they intersect via framework and sensibility.

Living and working in Toronto has been commensurate in my exposure to artists (international and local) and through mutual interest in growing our knowledge and experience we are bridging the distance between concept and production.”
