Director Biography – Ella Warner

Img 1981

I am a 12 year old student film maker, I go to Millikan Middle school and I am in the Cinematic Arts Academy. This film is special to me because my grandmother is suffering from slight memory loss, and I got to take her reality and make it into an art for many people to see. I also have been taking piano for eight years and I enjoy composing to my own short films.

 

Director Statement

 

I believe we have film to send out a powerful message to people. I make films to send the message. I want people to finish my film with emotion, and a thought that can help the world. I am an animal advocate, and went to a school with inclusion called CHIME, where special needs kids work in the same classroom.
