Also, being back home is amazing. The air is so fresh, there is so much space, and my parents’ house is so cozy. I’m definitely going to miss it when they sell it, but at least they’ll be moving closer to me.
(I’m also a fan of all of the food and alcohol and coffee in their house — probably going to gain a few pounds on this trip, oops.)
Being back home means a visit to my favorite boutique and I came out with this dress and stone necklace this afternoon! Perfect for my friends’ wedding tomorrow — think I’ll pair it with a purple-ish eye and nude lips.

And now that the film is done, Chris and I can finally go on a date! And I finally have time to do eyeliner and not look like some sort of scrub.
Time for some sushi~
It’s official — Sisters has wrapped.
Technically, most of the crew (myself included) finished last weekend, but Chris, our lead, and our cam op had to do some pickup work last night. And now that it’s moving into post, I’m so relieved.
Producing a short film (one that will end up being 16 min long) was one of the most challenging — if not the most challenging — creative experience of my life. Coordinating with 17-20 people every day on food, location, transportation and putting their happiness above mine to ensure that the set ran smoothly is exhausting. And I did this two full weekends in a row. Not to mention, all of the pre-production work I handled (finding locations, SAG forms, hiring people, etc) while I was also working 45+ hours per week. To say I was wiped would be an understatement. Honestly, it took me until this weekend (a week after I wrapped) to fully decompress and feel up to anything beyond my daily routine. Then, on top of general exhaustion, this project really tested our relationships (many on the crew were close friends) and that was the hardest part of all. But we’ve learned our lesson and we know how things will run differently next time around.
Beside all that, this experience was also the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Our crew was incredible and we’re blessed to have such amazing people in our lives who were willing to give their weekends to us. As for the actresses, I fully believe this will be a breakout role them. On one emotionally difficult day, our main actress burst into tears during the final scene and we had to cut for a few minutes to relax. But her final take directly after that was so intense — tears began to fall from my eyes as well (and I’m sure the same can be said of the others in the room, too). Then there’s the absolutely breathtaking footage we got and it feels like no other indie short I’ve seen.
We originally sought to get this edited and colored within the month to submit to Sundance, but after everything that’s happened, we want to do this right. Which means taking our time and so we’ll find the right festival whenever that happens. Hopefully I’ll be able to share clips with you all in the near future (and invite you to a screening if you’re in the NYC-area), but just hang tight for now! And thank you for all of the support many of you have given myself, Chris, and this project. We couldn’t do it without you.
This adorable photo was snapped by the one and only fauxroux who has graciously taken Baguette for the weekend, so I can lock myself in the apt and study, study, study for my last board exam- my LAST TEST OF MEDICAL SCHOOL! Tumblr really has a wonderful way of bringing people into your life.
Happy to watch him! (and glad he found a gf at my office hah)
