Words to Remember
“A poetic piece of work from a talented director."- Mohit Rajhans, Film Critic CityNews
If people lived life with the end in mind, they would find the nouns that matter most are not places or things, but, human beings. It is only through the hearts and minds we touch, through the peaks and valleys of joy and pain, that any evidence of our existence will remain. “Words to Remember” examines the heart wrenching pearls of wisdom that would be passed down to us if our future selves could share their reflections and regrets with us in the present moment. For the present moment, is the only moment that can truly make the difference in our lives.
“A heartbreaking beautiful composition. This film triggers an unforgettable quality which few up and coming filmmakers have the gift to inspire."- Mark Spicoluk-YTV Next Star Judge, Founder of Underground Operation and former Music Music disBand judge and Universal Music Canada Senior A&R

Measuring Tape Girl
‘Measuring Tape Girl’ is an examination of self-image and indecisiveness. A young woman approaching her thirties turns to online video blogging as a means of expressing her doubts and fears. She creates an alter ego named ‘Measuring Tape Girl’, which she uses as a self-defense mechanism to measure herself against others. In a series of online video blogs, she measures herself for all the world to see. Before anyone can judge her and get a chance to reject or accept her, she has already rejected herself several times. She believes that the key to overcoming her issues with her own self image and indecisiveness is to create an alter ego who can become the embodiment of all her self-hatred and doubts.
‘Measuring Tape Girl’ wishes to create a new mental image of herself by looking within and transferring all of her hopes, dreams and mental anguish from her internal world to an online form where they can take on a life of their own. Measuring Tape Girl has had screenings at the Cannes Film Festival and the Montreal World Film Festival.
