An Open Letter to Future Watchers:
A couple of years ago, I directed a movie I co-wrote with my friend Vera Miao called Best Friends Forever. I had never directed anything before or written anything that had made it to the screen. Thinking about it now, it was a pretty insane adventure that we embarked on. So to that boyfriend who at the time told me I wouldn't be able to do it, I see why you said that now. It was a lot harder than I thought. But, eh, you were still wrong.
It was scary, fun, and extremely exhausting. I felt like my heart get ripped out of my chest so many times. I felt like I was so tired I was going to die. I felt like my life was falling apart through the whole thing (and some might say it did).
But now I look back fondly and know that I and a very strong and irrationally enthusiastic group of people took a risk by taking money from our bank accounts, losing more sleep than we could ever recover from and taking time away from our families, friends and jobs to pursue something that was never going to make us rich or famous.
And now I know we can pretty much do anything. And that's a good feeling. Nothing feels that daunting anymore.
It's not perfect. But it was made with love and I think that shows on the screen.
So give it a watch if you would like. All the hits help us to get better placement on the site so anything is appreciated.
