Director Statement

You can’t hide from your problems. They follow you wherever you go, until you fix them… unless they fix you! That’s what I took away from the heart of “Big Time” after reading Amy G’s pilot. Her character is a circus performer who has been working away from home for years, hoping to return to her normal life in Brooklyn, and pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Obviously conflict ensues, much like life, and normalcy is the last thing Amy G winds up with. If you can’t relate to this, check out “Nell” starring Jodie Foster about a woman raised in the wilderness, also based on a true story. But then after "Nell", you will be ready for the "Big Time"!
