I've wanted to make a film for the 48 Hour since I'd first heard about the competition 10 years ago but I never felt like I had the cast and crew who could pull it off. I'm not someone who takes stupid risks. My risks are very calculated. The success of 24 Frames Lalla made me feel confident that I could pull together a cast and crew that would collaborate and have strong ideas. I was correct. Many great, kind, and talented people volunteered. I had a clear vision on how I wanted to produce the film and fortunately my game plan worked out extremely well. I'll always be very grateful to the people who volunteered for this project. The success of the film boosted my confidence in producing.
