Director Biography - Rachel Frank

I have had a passion for filmmaking since I was ten years old and first discovered Windows Movie Maker. As the years went on I took multiple film classes throughout both middle and high school and decided to study film full time when I got into college. I spent my entire college career focusing on creating this documentary in hopes I could help inspire a couple of people with this story.
While I'm not creating my own films, I specialize in script supervising and first assistant director while working on film sets.

Director Statement

From the very first day I met Brittney she began to inspire me unconditionally with her love and passion for living every day to its fullest potential. She never lets the hard times bring her down and she always manages to have a smile on her face.

We started this film my first year in college and honestly, we never thought it would become this big of a project, it simply started out as two best friends who wanted to create a film and try to inspire a few people. Four years later and we turned this passion project into a feature film.

We decided to make this film shortly after we met because we wanted to share her story with as many people as possible. I figured if she inspires me, just imagine how many other people she could inspire with her positivity and mindset.
