"After struggling for many years with conflict based PTSD I finally gave up. Like many people I have had my ups and downs, trials and tribulations and been round the block and few times. For a long time I let my mental health issues get the better of me. Of course when things started going wrong I sought out help in all the traditional ways but unfortunatetly i couldn't find a solution that resonated with me. So I came to the conclusion that living with these conditions was my lot in life.
I basically gave up on my own wellness and continued doing what I was doing which was going nowhere fast. While on that road I began making short narrative films and entering festivals. To my surprise after some time had passed I began to realize that the films I had been making were actually interwoven with my own experience and that I was no longer experiencing such volatile symptons of my conflict based PSTD. This became the origin of CREATE REEL CHANGE."
