DIRECTOR'S NOTES

I have worked with Sandy on other productions where I  was the camera operator or boom operator, but never in a directing role. Her years of experience in acting helped bring life to the character that I wrote in an unexpected way. I'm really looking forward to working with Sandy and seeing what she can do in the role of Mary.
