Experiencing Interruptions?

Sj

The truth about what goes on behind the scenes of independent film productions is rarely told. It's great when everything goes according to plan but when it doesn't, shit gets down right ugly. Feelings somehow come into play. This is known as the uncontrollable merge between professional and personal. How did that happen? You put it all out on the line just to cringe as it unfolds. Who's the talent? What financial backing do you have? Can you be professional? How far are you really willing to go? There are so many variables. Keep it together they tell you. How easy it is for others to utter those words. This is the becoming of SJ.

Director Statement

Creating Sj was a decision made out of necessity. For years I have been trying to bring to life a specific project. There are so many hurdles, ups and downs and disappointments for many involved in this industry. With little to no budget this short film was formed. This is a behind the scenes story into my experiences as a first time filmmaker in front of the camera as well as behind the lens.
