Jack and Em is a love story about loss, about grief, about how to put yourself aside and keep pushing through for the people and in this case family, and child that need you. Find comfort in others, when the instinct may be to push them away.

It’s about finding a balance. That sometimes, no matter how badly we want to hold onto those we lose, that it’s easy to lose ourselves in that process. Letting go. Oh!  Also, to allow time to play, to pay attention to the children around you, and see how they interpret the world. I think that’s important.

 Why Cape Cod? The cape has always been near and dear to my heart. If you’ve been, or you live there, you know why. It’s magical, it’s haunting. It’s unpredictable.

I am so unbelievably grateful to my family and friends that have believed in me and pushed me forward to make this happen. There are a lot of firsts going on here. My first script, and first time directing. First of many collaborations with Thompson Films productions.  

www.thompsonfilmsllc.com I know I couldn’t have gotten here on my own. I believe in this story, and the team I have around me. We’ve worked really hard to get to where we are, and I am excited to keep going and see what our lil film can be.

But we need help. After many many discussions about what is needed and what is most important, we’ve made big decisions to move forward professionally, and hire the people we believe are right for the job. We also need equipment, and I’m going to need to feed them. :) I want people to be involved, I want to share my excitement and this story and then future stories. Stories stories stories…you get the idea. If you are in a position to give, please do. If not. I get it. I really do, every dollar helps. Every conversation helps. If you have questions about specifics or if you just want to chat about the story. Please reach out. I love talking about this. I get very passionate about it. I warned ya.

Risks and challenges

Every step of the way has been a risk, and the challenge to push through. Shooting at the beach will definitely be an adventure, also putting Jack in a row boat at night. Can't wait.
