Great stories can touch something that lies deep within each and every one of us, and inspire us to become something greater.
Our work is to create films that stir the spirit, give rise to courage, and inspire others on their quest to be their best.
Emerging as a filmmaker late in life, Richard's work is infused with the attitude and philosophy he has developed over a lifetime studying Zen and the traditional Martial Arts. His films share a preoccupation with the lives of working-class individuals struggling to survive with a sense of dignity and to make sense of a world that in it's flailing to find a new order leaves in it's wake social disintegration, egotism, and environmental ruin. Probing the depths of the human condition, his growing vision is of a will to enlighten his protagonists and so help to liberate them from the circumstances, relationships and mental states that oppress, restrict or destabilize them in one way or another. Although echoing the themes of such responsible realists as the Dardene Brothers or Ken Loach, there is often an air of poetry and magical realism along the lines of Lynne Ramsay that make his films beautiful, thought provoking, and inspirational.
