“Time Heals”, So They Say!

4 Sep

3T7A7466 When someone is going through a rough time we like to tell that person, “time will heal”. Sometimes we don’t even know to what extent that person is hurting- but nothing seems or feels easier than to tell him or her that better day is ahead.

In the past couple years I have lost a few people who met everything to me. One of them was my mother’s one and only brother who passed away in Haiti. That one really hit home for me! Before he passed away, I was working in Haiti. And I only “made time” to see him once.  I truly thought I was a “busy bee” and assumed I had all the times in the World to see my uncle: especially when I already made plan for the following year to go back. I left Haiti and the following day, my uncle passed. I was crushed! Had I known, I would have made my uncle a priority. My uncle passed five years ago and it still hurts today. Mainly because I was away from my family and friends when I was mourning. I was in college and it seemed like I had no shoulder to cry on.

My Epic Year

31 Dec

img_2563At the beginning of the year, we like to claim the year is going to be our year. Claim it in the name of JESUS! By declaring it, we hope to achieve bigger goals, starting a new diet or even becoming a better person. Some of us actually do keep up with these resolutions; however, to others- they all are forgotten by the first week of February.

The 2016’s year  was epic for me, positively and negatively. I have gone through so many journeys; it’s almost impossible to believe that it has only been 365 days. This year, I directed one of the many scripts I have written. It is one of my favorites- also a project that hits home whenever I talk about it. This year, “4:53” was born. It is a film focusing on Haitian mothers. I wanted to create a world where women are valued and strong. This film main goal was to show the rest of the universe how bold and capable are Black women. Though it has been a rough journey, I cannot wait to finish this project in the upcoming year.

When Nights and Days become One

8 Mar

At the beginning of the year, I promise that I was going to do monthly-posts, I am keeping that promise; boy I did not expect February to be that hectic. The month was over before I could even imagined- the good thing, I overcame it so no complaining.

I enjoyed February, and I hope you did, as well.  I started pre-production of my film on the first week of the month- meaning, holding auditions, meeting up with my cinematopher, scouting for locations, finding an editor and casting the rest of the crew. All this had to be done within a month. I was nervous, I didn’t think I was going to be able to handle it all, since this was my first, ever film that I am directing, producing and let alone it was written by me.  With the way things are going right now, I am very happy.  We are scheduling to start shooting the last week of March, as nervous that I am- I cannot wait.
