Graduation

I still can’t believe this happened.

Last night I graduated with a BFA in Film/Video from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am so fortunate to have walked the stage with eight of my friends and fellow filmmakers who I shared my college experience with. Many thanks to our professors, Bart Weiss, Ya’Ke Smith, and Mark Clive. You have inspired us and given us the knowledge and drive to achieve our goals.

I’m proud to say I come from UTA’s film program.

Wrap Party

Last night we got to celebrate Solstice at our cast & crew wrap party. It was so great to see our little family again. Jacob and his mom brought us all a huge gift basket full of all kinds of goodies and many memories from the set! It was the sweetest thing ever.

I am so blessed to have had so many amazing people work on this film. I love them all so much. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for Solstice, and to make many more films with these people in the future.
