I think one of my favorite memories of my father was when we went to go see Good Will Hunting. It was in Ponca City, Okalahoma at a duplex theatre. I remember it so well because as we walked to the car that cold wintery night he said, “That was probably the most significant films of your life”. You see to him, I was Will Hunting. Angry. Hurt. But brimming with potential. Over the years that moment came to mean a few other things.
Would I go on to write a movie that would win an Oscar like Ben and Matt?
Would I get to canoodle with Jennifer Garner? (Still LOVE her smile).
Some time later, but before I started to transition to my new career in film he dreamed about me being on stage accepting an award.
That day hasn’t happened, but we’re getting closer every step of the way.

The theme of the year is: Rebirth.
It’s been two years of preparation for this moment, and as you all know- Birth is a bloody, sticky experience. We’ve all done it at least once. Some of the girls out there will have to do it again, except from a different angle. But here we go. Some evaluation and planning to come in the next few days here we go.
