Director Statement

I wrote and directed this film, "Let’s Never Speak of This Again," during my final two semesters at the University of Georgia. At the time, Kelsey Cunningham, the Producer, and I were preparing for our last semester of undergraduate school and were planning on making a completely different film to see our senior year out. However, the two of us loved the concepts behind Olivia Wilde’s "Booksmart," and hence decided to tell a story about two female best friends that we could each see ourselves in ... which would become Ava and Kathryn.

I pulled inspiration from a spring break trip I went on my freshman year, which consisted of myself, a good girl friend, and five boys that I hardly knew. While my trip went nothing like Ava and Kathryn’s, I remembered what it was like feeling both optimistic and nervous to be around a new group of people for so long. I also wrote this script during a breakup, which became the catalyst for Ava and Braden’s relationship.

Making this film was both challenging and exciting because every single crew member was in school. However, we weren’t permitted to use any of the university’s equipment due to class guidelines. We raised just over $3000 on Indiegogo, which allowed us to pay for equipment rentals, food, set decoration, etc. Furthermore, almost all of our actors drove in from Atlanta, which is two hours one way with traffic. These challenges showed me the dedication that the cast, crew, and I had to this story to tell it in its best capacity.

I want audience members to be able to see themselves in this story. Whether they see Ava as their best friend, Braden as their senior year heartbreak, or Mrs. Baker as their overprotective mom, I want us to remember what it was like to be in our early 20’s and completely terrified. For me, creating this film helped me feel a little less terrified and acted as my goodbye to my college years.
