Abstract/Artist Statement

My inspiration for producing and directing the film Pauws, came from the relationship my family and I had with a childhood neighbor. This kind hearted man in his late 70s, walked his dog around my neighborhood every day. The inspiration for the character, Courtney, came from a time when I lost my dog which was the same breed as my neighbor’s. Crossing paths with him and his dog, always reminded me of the cheerful times I had with mine. My family looked into adopting dogs and fill that hole, but it never seemed to work out. It was not until recently when my parents surprised my brother and I with two Shih Tzu puppies my junior year of high school. Not only did these two puppies fill that hole in our lives, but when they grew older they brought, into this world and into our family, a puppy of their own. A spunky and energetic puppy, also a great addition to our family.
