Director Statement

I have always been inspired, in my life and in my projects, by every day heroes. It takes guts to go for what makes you happy and live life your own way, because in life there are no guarantees. To me Anne is that every day hero, who finally summons up the courage and strength to go after her one true love, not knowing what will happen and not letting age, society or what’s expected of her, hold her back. I hope when people connect with Anne, they see that going for your own happiness is what is important in life.

The effects of war on people in the armed services and how their lives change forever physically, mentally and emotionally is a very important issue to me. Michael is fighting the demons from the effect of war while Anne fights her own personal demons.

I was inspired to write the original song “Come Away With Me Tonight” as Michael and Anne’s song from the 60’s. It voices Anne’s memories of her high school sweetheart. This story and these very real characters touch my heart. I hope it touches yours. They are my every day heroes!
