It’s the morning of January 29th and upon waking, I had to pinch myself. Is this real? Did last night really happen? I checked my computer. Yup, we did it. We really, really did it! Things We Dig, my short film in the making since 2016, after heartbreaking losses, seemingly insurmountable hurdles and many, many challenges, is finished!
Last night, after one more quick color correction by all around rockstar Stephen Mickelsen (Bad Cat Films), my phenomenal editor Peter Stoll (San Diego Digital Imagery) uploaded the finished version of the short film, and after watching it one more time (out of hundreds of times) in the quiet of my office, I poured myself a double rye whiskey, another for my biggest supporter, my hubby J.R., and we gave it a hearty toast. We fucking did it!!!
Thank you to all of my cast and crew and all our supporters that hung in there with us over the last FOUR years! It would never have been possible without you! There really are no words that can fully convey my gratitude. All I can say at this point is thank you – from the bottom of my scarred little black heart! I love you!
We will start submitting the horror comedy to film festivals starting this weekend! I can’t wait to share it with you and make it worth your wait!!!!! And yes, like it says in the graphic above…it was worth fighting for! You’ll see… :)
