On Another Note

After quitting his dead-end job, 24-year-old Nathan is driving back to his hometown to work for his parents. Those plans change when his car suddenly breaks down in smoke. A man pulls over to help, but it's none other than Nathan's dreaded high school music teacher, Mr. Richmond. With no other options, Nathan must heal old wounds in order to get back on the road.

Director Statement

'On Another Note' is a love letter to jazz, but more importantly, a testament to pursuing what you love and the people who have believed in you, whether you knew it or not. This film has been a passion project for me, and fittingly so because this film is all about the passion of seeing something through. The dynamic of the teacher-student and the mentor-mentee relationship has always resonated with me. It was a pleasure creating the characters of Nathan and Mr. Richmond and bringing them to life on set with an amazing cast and crew.
