Update #24

Fly to Paradise

8 comments

Any of you who have worked with me before on a new piece know that I am obsessively writing and rewriting until the last possible minute. (And oftentimes after the premiere). I have decided once again to change the title of our piece, this time to "Fly to Paradise." That is now the official title, because we are just finishing the film and after today it will be impossible to change.

I'll write more about the my reasons for the change in a separate post, but for now just know that it's connected to something exciting. I really, really want to get it right before we launch it into the world. Woo hoo!
