Director Statement

Dance Dance Astro Gurl has been so deeply and intricately intertwined with the most transformative period of my life. Several scheduled scenes, including an epilogue with the now unseen gamer and her mother, were canceled and never filmed because my mother was suddenly hospitalized. She passed away within two weeks. After spending that time by her bedside, I returned to Las Vegas to premiere Dance Dance Astro Gurl as my final student project. I made the 12 hour round trip drive again for her memorial, which was held shortly after, over Mother’s Day weekend only to walk at commencement the following Tuesday. This project has brought me so much joy amidst deep heartache and helped me celebrate my best earthly life.
