Director's Note

Flowers from Venables was shared with me by my friends Lou Ticzon and Eryka Alanna - a beautiful and intimate story about how they met. I was immeditately struck by the honesty and vulnerability of the script. It poses the simple, age-old question of love against duty.

 

Often, short films try to do too much in too short of a time. I was excited to be a part of the storytelling process in this show, because it’s a script that is very much contained within its own compelling story, while speaking to a relatable and universal theme.

I saw my role in this film as mostly a facilitator - as the actors were the  co-producers and co-writers on the show-and because I had a great working relationship with them both already, I was simply creating a playground for our artists on-screen and creative keys off-screen to bring this story to life, under a vision that  was grounded in the intimate and delicate nature of the story.
