Director Statement

It's hard being a creative. It can seem as though the entire world is in your way. I made this short film because that is exactly how I feel at times. I have found that inspiration and absurdity are equals in the moments leading up to a stroke of genius. After years of slogging along and what seemed like one cosmic joke after the next, I called my Grandmother. Nana has danced and taught ballet her entire life. She has made her life her art, and her art her life. I asked her what to do. She told me to "Just keep going." So that's what I do. I hope you do too.
