To me, family is really important. I come from a small family, but a close one. We get along most of the time. I enjoy Christmas the most, it’s gives us a time to come together and be a family.
Growing up, I always felt supported. From the age of 13 I wanted to be a filmmaker. My family put with the aggravation of me turning the house into a movie set every chance I got. Not to mention the bags of flour I poured over the dining room table for a shoot. (I was shooting a supernatural pilot episode) I thought I was remaking Buffy The Vampire Slayer or something. As well as the fake eyeballs I cut up, filled with fake blood (I found a simple recipe online) What can I say? I was a dark minded teenager. Watching too many horror movies mixed with a creative imagination. I’m sure there are plenty more things that I’ve forgotten.
My family must have been so sick of hearing me say the words “Can you watch this?”, “Please just watch one more time”. “Is it possible to borrow for kitchen for the afternoon.” What can I say, studio spaces are so expensive. I was grateful for all of the opinions you gave me about my work.
Thanks to my family, they allowed me the freedom to ‘express my art’. I also appreciate the support they gave me support and courage to finish school, go on to University, graduate and live in South Korea for a year. I really appreciate the love and support.
Of course every family has their problems, ours was no exception. But despite everything, we always come back together.
Thank you ❤
