"Knowing how to make a movie magnificent is a gift. How to capture an image technically is one thing, but how to tell a story is another. Kara is a huge part of the reason Hemlock Films produces the kind of movies that cuddle up to your heart, open your mind, and settle well in your soul."

I want the audience to feel something. If I'm not evoking emotion, I'm failing.
