As we sit in the editing room with our next short film, we look back at our last one:
A hopelessly romantic introvert is coerced by her friends into trying a dating app. What ensues are the mishaps of searching for true love on the interweb. Can a hopeless romantic thrive in the age of online dating?
Sweat, tears, joy and absolute exhilaration.
iHeart, we heart you still.

“Okja takes the meaning of “man’s best friend” to new heights: except this time the man is a young Korean girl, and the best friend is a massive factory-made super pig.”
-Kevin Mozulay, Rotten Tomatoes
Watch this film now.
This is us.
Artists, exhaustively keeping the dream alive.
Alive. A life.
We whisper, “This film has life.”
This is tremendous preparation.
This is sleepless nights, juggling balls in air (do not drop), taking the first step into mystery.
Light candles for the Creative Gods.
Say thanks every day.
Sun up or down, do something that scares the living shit outta you.
Thank your skilled Giants.
If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.
– Sir. Isaac Newton
What is Grit? The disposition to pursue very long term goals with passion and perseverance. It is sticking with things over the long term and then working very hard at it. Grit is living life like a marathon, not a sprint.
Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching math to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn’t the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of “grit” as a predictor of success.
“Lobbying is about foresight
But anticipating your opponent’s moves
And devising countermeasures
The winner plots one step ahead of the opposition
And plays her trump card
Just after they play their’s.
It’s about making sure you surprise them,
And they don’t surprise you.”
– Miss Sloan
Cards pressed against chest.
Tears bottled and jarred, and placed behind the curtain’s curtain.
Less is more.
Fancy-pancy, witty, funny. Handshakes, plastered smiles.
As we gear up to shoot our next short film, we look back at our last one. Sweat, tears, joy and exhilaration. iHeart, we still heart you.
