I have a streak of perfectionism, but it’s directed at myself only.
I don’t request perfectionism from anyone around me. I only have power over myself. Everyone else has to do what they have to do.
(Which often leads to me doing more than I maybe should, ya think?)
BUT… having an entertainment partner who demands perfection is… PERFECT for me.
Diana Richardson, producer extraordinaire, is my partner in crime or comedy or drama. Whatever the day demands. She is a little bulldog (and I love bulldogs!!!!!) in her determination to get things right… always right!
In eight weeks I went from complete ignorance to producing, writing and directing my own short film PRELUDE TO MURDER IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN while being mentored by Julia Solomonoff and Danielle Lessovitz.
Thank you so much to my incredible cast of actors, Perri Reavis and Lon Lawson. And to my DP and editor, Benjamin Ward. Directing is truly a collaborative adventure that unites everyone on set.
And add to all of that… This course has set me on the correct path for directing Della Greenawalt’s award winning script SUNFLOWER CARE in May.
