The experience was wonderful, all the actors and crew were highly professional and didn’t treat it like it was their first friends job, they put their all into it and made it come out well.

We got over six nominations for Best Short Film including the AMVCAs and a team came all the way from Poland to do a five-day documentary on me because of the short film”. The she enthused
