Director Statement

Creator's Crisis is an absurd comedy about the self doubt and insanity that often goes along with trying to pursue a life as an artist. The director, Destiny Macon, has had to deal with so much frustration around the uncertainty of the dreams she feels called to pursue. With this film, she drew inspiration from quirky films like; Edward Scissorhands, Little Shop of Horrors, and the Nutty Professor (with Eddie Murphy) because they comment on the emotional toll that comes with trying to mold yourself into someone other than yourself.
