Black Harvest Film Fest Selection!!!
Filmed at the top of the year 2018 and six months later my film, "The Polyamorist" is an Official Selection for the Black Harvest film festival!!!
I am proud. I am excited. I am nervous. I am giddy!
Hard work and perseverance pays off. The moment I received the news, a silent tear dropped from my eyes. My hands were shaking as I scrolled my phone reading the message. It was such a stressful day. Directing isn't just during production. Making a movie has so many components to it and unseen pain and energy is very present. But my passion outweighs any and all angst. Vision and focus drives me. So that moment of seeing "you are selected" released such a powerful cry and sigh. I cried. I cried. And sighed. I smiled. I looked at my life partner with his smiling eyes looking so proudly back at mine eyes. Happy tears he said. My moment.
Now the next moment!! Still work to do!! Gotta get festival ready!! Business, promotions, invitations, announcements, social media, oh and what to wear???
Okie dokie, I gotta sciddaddle!! Hope to see you all there!!
