As the director and main subject of the film, this project is deeply personal and passionate for me. I knew going into this project that it was going to require an immense amount of resilience in response to rejection when reaching out for support which I have encountered many times throughout the fight to keep us moving forward. When you are in that fight, every small show of support revitalizes your momentum and reminds everyone involved that someone out there really believes in what you’re doing and sees the importance in your work. Receiving the TPP grant and seeing our project on the same list as so many other phenomenal projects that were chosen really lifted us up and pushed us to the next obstacle to overcome with confidence.
The TPP team have been wonderful to us. We are very proud to attach the TPP name to our project both along the way and in the final crediting of our film to be seen by every audience we can reach.
