Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
In a desperate bid to prevent her boyfriend from leaving, Melinda employs every trick she knows, but as her journey unfolds, she must confront the five stages of grief, learning that she cannot control everything
Written & Produced by: Emogene Shadwick / Directed by Julissa Scopino
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.
