Director Statement

We were fortunate to get the go-ahead for this film because of COVID restrictions, but the online nature of filmmaking these days gave me the idea to join the Sacramento 48 Hour Film Fest again. I had submitted a short "40 Days" to them last year at the beginning of the pandemic. For this year's 6 Minute short, I went to my community to find others who might want to talk about their identity, bisexual culture, and what being part of the B in LGBTQ means to them. Originally, there were more participants, but the comic fantasy genre scared the others, so they canceled their interview times. The bisexual identity is often the butt of jokes, so I didn't blame them for stepping back. It took me 24 hours of the 48 to schedule, record remotely, and sort through the interviews. The remainder of the festival was spent in Premiere Pro, editing down all the footage to a mere 6 minutes. Ideally, filmmakers hope that their work will speak for itself. I hope that when people watch this short, they learn something about how varied the bisexual community can be.
