Director's Statement

The character of Melinda immediately drew me into this project.

She's vibrant, complex, misunderstood, and presumptuous, with an element of vulnerability. For some reason, I kept thinking of "I Love Lucy." The scene when she's pouring whiskey into a measuring cup was designed by me. The writer wanted a regular glass, although I thought the measuring cup played more into the psyche of the character and her exhibited behavior.

This film was a wonderful step in my learning process.

We regret that the high-quality original video of this production is currently inaccessible, as it is in the possession of the producer and writer, who is no longer in the industry. Kindly consider this uploaded version as an insightful glimpse into the talent of a growing director.
