Director Statement

Although "This is Only Temporary" is a work of fiction, many aspiring young actors can relate to the fact that breaking into the "biz" is not an easy task and they find themselves in extremely awkward and yet funny situations to "get notice" or to make a few bucks while pursuing their so called dreams.

"This is Only Temporary" shows the journey of Pippa, a British young actress who recently moved to L.A. trying to pursue her dreams and all the ridiculous things that she has to do to survive.

Like "Pippa", I’m sure that everyone who aspires for a job in the industry or any other job, no matter for what position, felt at some point vulnerable or in an awkward situation, asking themselves if its "really worth it?" or "would I make it?". That is what makes "TIOT" so funny and thrilling to watch, the expression of a reality and the struggle to "Make it".
