I've been living in South Korea for the past nine years. I'm a film teacher at an international school. The film resulted from me deciding to take on the assignment and work alongside the students to ensure I gave them enough time to create something meaningful. It wasn't until we finished that I decided to keep going and work with a compose to create original music. This process allowed me to experience the process from idea to exhibition. It was a great experience, and it helped revive my creativity.
I'm currently working on a script for a web series and also wrapping up some edits on a collaborative project centered on black gay men. It's exuberating and haunting at the same time I'm excited about it.
Sense of Joy is an experience. It creates an ethereal experience through the exploration of self-love. It's grounding, relaxing and joyous.
In the scene where he's waving the sage and experiencing a cleansing, we filmed a small bedroom with the windows and doors closed. After a few takes, we started to realized that the smoke was filling the room. I framed the perfect angle, and he put the sage too close to his nose and started choking! We all laughed so hard, and of course, I kept the camera rolling at 120fps, resulting in one of my favorite scenes. The moment of Joy.
