Director Statement

When Eric Handler (the Producer) told me of the project “Dreamwisher," I was immediately drawn to it. The film is about grief and how we all deal with it in our own ways. Some withdraw from the world. Others take it as inspiration. And some hope to be reunited again. The loss of a parent can never be replaced and it leaves a hole, no matter how many years have passed. I experienced this myself when my own parents died within 18 months of each other in 2004 and 2005. So the story of ‘Dreamwisher’ is a very personal story as I still dream about them all the time. The film is not just a story of grief, but also an uplifting one. Death can be a beautiful event in all of our lives. And I wanted to show that with “Dreamwisher.” Also, I am a huge “Twilight Zone” fan and anytime, I can come close to creating something in that vein, I leap at the chance.
