Writer Statement

Writing Stay Not Silent was very difficult for me. It started as one idea and has morphed into several different ones, finally landing where it did. It tells such a hard and difficult message that I've struggled to even end the script the way I did, but I wanted to make sure the message was driven home and not watered down. I had to force myself to look inward at pieces of me that I may not have wanted to face, but the realism behind the film is so emotional because a lot of what the characters feel toward each other are raw emotions inside of myself. In the end, I am satisfied with how this script turned out, and am very much looking forward to getting to film it someday soon.
