2017 A PLACE CALLED SACRAMENTO FILM FESTIVAL

This was the first time I produced and directed a piece that was written by someone else. We assembled a dynamic team and got this done amongst one of Sacramento’s very hot summer. Hint: The flowers were NOT supposed to be wilted but used it to our advantage to make the scene more comedic in nature.
