Still from Nieta

What do you want the audience to take away from your films?

I would like the audience to feel the film and get a connection with the characters and the story which I believe is one of the hardest things to accomplish.

What’s your best advice for an aspiring filmmaker?

To finish their projects. Animated shorts as well as features take a long time. I think it is very important to complete the projects that you start because it gives you a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
