With all the changes going on in my life lately, I haven't had much time to reflect on a bittersweet milestone. My short film Lay in Wait, a delicious albatross that I've been wearing around my neck for the last four years, will be completing its festival run this weekend at the South Dakota Film Festival.
Y'all know how much this movie has meant to me. It's seen the start (and end) of at least three romantic relationships. It's seen my change of residence from LA to SC to NE to SC to ATL to MI and back to ATL. It's given me, as a precious little gift, a bundle of every conceivable emotion, from euphoria to bone-grating frustration to depression to well-earned peace.
It's easily the most ambitious, and most difficult thing I've ever had to make. And like a lot of projects that we do, I'm a different person now than when I began to make it. I hope a wiser and more considerate artist, one who's ready to move on.
So thank you all. I've said this from the very beginning, but I couldn't have made this project without your help. I'm only as good as you allow me to be.
