"FUCK YEAH ENERGY"
TODAY IS THE DAY!!
It’s our world premiere at The Calgary International Film Festival as part of The Alberta Shorts Package.
(ahem, other directors in this category include Ingrid Vargas, and Levi Holwell. It’s fine)
I thought I would be freaking out!
(Secret I have been kinda freaking out from time to time)
This film is pretty vulnerable for me if I’m being honest.
(And it’s been a raw couple of weeks around here with coverage of the Alberta Trans Health Care Crisis on @globalnews and @huffpostcanadaand the: surprise! you’re not getting you chest fixed after all!)
I’m running a little close to empty so I’ve hidden a little these last couple of days.
I was worried that I wouldn’t have anything left when premiere day came, that I’d used up all the resiliency I had left.
But then this other crazy magical thing happened instead.
Today I woke up and all that neurotic fear of “is it good enough, and did I tell the right story, and will people get what we are trying to say,” was just gone. (Katherine says it’s because of the great sex we had. I say every bit helps!)
Instead it was replaced with all of this excitement and what I’m calling “FUCK YEAH!! Energy.”
We’ve been working on this for so long: talking about making it, and making, and editing, and talking about making some more, and then waiting for this film to get to you for a year now!
I’m ready to be done talking and start showing you all, this little film baby that Katherine (@declaredominion) and I brought into the world with the help of @storyhive(THANKS STORYHIVE)
We’ll see you @calgaryfilm TODAY!!!!
(There night still be tickets, and there’s another screening next Sunday!)
Ack! Love you all!
P.S. We are taking over @storyhive Instagram today so come follow along in the stories in just a little bit!
