The ballad of the eternal art student: keeping momentum going

I just graduated from film school. That’s five years of super-intense learning, progress, setbacks, failures, triumphs–the kind of experience that can’t help but make you up your game as an artist and craftsperson if you put your whole heart, soul and guts in it.

I’m really proud of it; it’s a good representation of what I’m about as a filmmaker, and hopefully it will show at other festivals in the future.
