What is it like to spend 10 years researching, writing, filming, scripting, casting, editing and finally debuting your work for friends, family and complete strangers?
It was rather liberating. One of the funny things is that I don’t really care what they thought. Some came up to me and talked about what they didn’t like. I just smiled but seriously didn’t care. Don’t be confused. I wanted to know what they thought but at the same time their opinions did not bum me out or cause self-doubt to invade my fragile ego.
I am proud of this film. I believe it tells a good story because it is based on the journal writings of those who actually went through this ordeal. We spent hours, days, and weeks trying to find visuals that could represent their words and do justice to their lives. I believe it is amazing.
That is not to say there aren’t things I would like to change or make better, but at some point you have to move on. I have to move on. I think I am weird. I enjoyed the process more then the end result. Kind of like it’s all about the journey and not the destination.
For me, I like the journey. So….journey on!
