This film project is a very personal journey for the director Andrija Petkeviciute; and I felt privileged to be part of it.
It follows the story of Violet Tucker/ 'Tuck' who attends Depression Alliance and is seemingly well put together, stable and controlled; until she meets Ashley. Ashley is all the excitement of the world that Tuck had kept hidden for fear of losing control of herself. Will she let herself lose control? What will happen if she does?
It has been a great process working with strong actors and crew alike. Using a script that is so very personal to someone is always a challenge for an actor because you feel more pressure to do a good job - and make it right. And actually, it isn't about that, or solely you. They have entrusted you with their script and you're there to do a job: to tell that story. They don't really know what the end product will look like- they have an idea, and outline. Your job is to colour it in.
The film is currently in the editing process but you can watch the Crowdfunding film here here and meet the director:
