Almost a year and a half ago, I was talking to Kara Johnson after meeting her at a film shoot. I told her I had this dream and vision to create a project that hired all of my dear female friends, and promoted a sense of collaboration, exploration, love, bad-assery, and Wonder Woman Vibes. I told her I would get back to her when I was ready to make this happen.
After over a year of deciding what story I wanted to tell and planning pre-production, yesterday that dream happened.
Months getting incredible guidance and script notes from my dear friend Kelly Several months of me voicing doubt to my dear friends, about how this would be my first "non-comedic" film I would be writing, but it was a story that I was ready to and needed to tell. Countless texts to friends, saying my anxiety may take over, and I may not be able to make this film. Calls to my amazing therapist and mother, voicing my worry and anxiety.
Yesterday these incredible women came together with tremendous strength, tenacity, drive and love. I do not know if I have ever experienced what happened on my set yesterday. Not a drop of ego. Everyone working above and beyond to make a vision come to life. Every moment MAGICAL.
I adore each and every one of you, and my heart just BEAMS when I look at this photo. It is a day I will never forget, and my gratitude is endless. To everyone who was a part of this film, on and off set, you are my tribe. My loves. My people. My fam. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Oh. And we are most DEFINITELY stronger together.
