Three years ago this month, we began production on Over-the-Rhine, my first feature film as a writer-director-producer. I’d made many short films over the years, but this was the first time anyone had ever put up the funding necessary for a feature.
Over-the-Rhine has since won over twenty film awards and nominations, and is slated for release later this year. I’m currently working on a novelization, to be published (I hope) at the same time.
Whatever the final outcome, telling a story I believe in so passionately has been a life-changer for me. What are some of your life-changers?
