Why did you decide to submit to FirstGlance?
This is my first project, self funded and I loved the idea of being able to showcase projects for people that are creating content.
Will someone from your team be attending FirstGlance?
Ashley will for sure be attending, and since it’s local for most of our cast and crew, I’m sure there will be others!
What is something you feel is important for our readers to know about your film?
This film actually tackles a serious subject, sex trafficking. We wanted to bring attention to the subject without bashing people’s heads in with it. We plan on making it into a television series, there’s already interest.
What should viewers expect from your film?
I hope people laugh and want to see more! I hope they also see the message that getting what you always think you wanted, doesn’t always solve the problems you think it will.
Do you have any production stories our readers might enjoy?
Our first day of production, we have an over-night in Topanga Canyon and our Grip accidentally eats a peanut butter filled pretzel, and then informs me he’s allergic to peanuts! I was still in make-up! Sheer panic! He was rushed to an emergency room, and was at the shoot the next day! Thank goodness!
What are you looking forward to most at FirstGlance?
I love meeting other film-makers. Nothing like meeting other creatives that get the production juices flowing!
