“I really wanted to make a film that pushed for transgender actors. I saw a lot of short films with transgender actors, which are about the struggle of being transgender. Obviously that’s a relevant topic, but I feel like it boxes transgender actors into that being the only story they can be involved in.
I tried to make a film that touched on it, as it’s an important factor, but wasn’t the main storyline of the film. I researched a lot into transgender films and the things that were missing, then wrote a script based on my research. I tried to make something that was real, taken from people’s experiences.
I was lucky enough to meet Elijah, the actor. Without him the film wouldn’t have worked.
I came out of my time here with a film that I’m really proud of. I’m hoping to do the festival circuit with this film.”
