Writer Statement

I started writing this film years ago and picked it up again my senior year of college. The original idea for the story has vastly changed as I have grown as a writer over the years and as a person. The main character, Alex, is definitely a part of my internal personality; she says the things I wish I could. She is fearless and loyal, but she's also struggling with depression and feelings of rejection. Writing her relationship with Grayson and Jasmine was very healing from me as it was based off of a situation in my own life. I had to learn to see their mistakes as character flaws among the good. It helped me process my own rejection and humanize the villains in my own life.

There is a concept trailer available to watch on my website:
