Taking in constructive feedback is akin to eating vegetables. You know it’s good for you, even if you don’t always want it.

And throughout the process of putting together this film project, I’ve learned more and more that it’s all about process. The art is in the process moreso than the results, because one can’t control the end result or how audiences respond to that end result.

As artists, we have process, and finding ways to improve upon, master and perfect a process that is both meaningful and unique to each artist.

No one ever sets out to write a shitty book, an awful song, or a poorly reviewed movie. We all go in trying to do the best we can. And yet, even the best don’t always end up with the results they hoped for.

In film, the art is in the collaboration: whom you choose to work with, how you work with them, how to get the best ideas from each collaborator and also how to incorporate those ideas into the work itself.

As we head into pre-production, I’m excited and nervous at the same time about the amazing team of people we’ve brought together for this project.
