“Dark at Sea begun as a appreciate letter to the ambitions and the payoffs that appear with becoming artistic and the sacrifices that it entails. I desired to produce something private and summary that the general audience, and especially our artistic neighborhood, could relate to. Creating this film reminded me that the persistent mother nature of the human remaining is what keeps us hungry for what is remaining out there to conquer. On the other hand, the pandemic forced us to reflect on our behaviours and the way we watch the earth. Considering that I began a vocation in film, I’ve felt like I must give up almost everything else. This film is a reminder to be additional gentle and compassionate with me”.
