Thank the GODS for Persephone! She gave us spring!
Very proud to present my first short film -- a five-minute art piece about an ancient Greek mythical girl who has captivated the world for *25 centuries*. Please watch and share!
Before Christ and the Roman Republic, ancient peoples believed Persephone's abduction into hell by Hades created winter... and her return to earth for part of the year, spring.

Big shout out to Vancouver photographer Lilian Liu for letting me into her creative process to create unique fantastical photographic looks.
She brought together an impressive crew, including Seattle-model Caitin Stickels to portray the Queen of the Underworld / Goddess of Spring.

It was my first time shooting and editing a "larger team production" and felt very much like making a little movie. I am now aiming at even larger scripted productions, and hope to be a cinema editor.
