As the days flew by since my last blog post it became harder to know where to start with the next one. So much happened in between and I was afraid of leaving anything out but then I was also afraid of writing a book and lawd knows I did NOT have time for that.
Back in November I had the opportunity to show Chronic Means Forever at it’s first film festival. The 44th Northwest Filmmakers Festival chose MY film to be one of five feature length films to show at this year’s festivals.
As I sit at my desk watching Queen of Katwe on Netflix and letting my most recent vlog footage render… My mind races with endless unrelated questions.
Is this Zen’s (my youngest sister) 5th time watching the episode of Jessie I hear playing upstairs?
Does Polymer Clay really not dry when exposed to air or is the text written on the box lying?
Have I eaten enough today?
Exactly one month ago I premiered my first feature length film. That feels so wild to say.
The premiere of Chronic Means Forever went better than I could have ever anticipated. About 75 of my closest family and friends took time out of their day and used the gas from their car to come see this film I spent a year working on… To validate feelings that I bottled up for 23 years… To tell me that they love me.
I’ve been putting off this first blog post for a very long time and just now decided to bite the bullet. Welcome to my website and welcome to my media diary. I won’t be sharing specific details about my media projects, can’t have someone pick pocketing my ideas. But I would like to let y’all in on the emotional journey that I go through while creating.
