Risks and challenges

Of course, making a movie is difficult. Crazy, in fact. But if it were easy, then everyone would do it. And if my father taught me anything, it's that prior planning prevents piss poor performance. I've been writing and planning this film since the beginning of 2017. The time to execute is now.

The filming of this will take place in my home city, the greater Boston area. The fact that I can include my family and close friends, while making this project... It means the world to me. They've supported this dream since I was 14, chasing my beagle around the living room with a mini DV camcorder.

Now, it's time to take the plunge! I'm focused. I'm ready. Let's get it done.
