@z_al and I looking out over SF while shooting @the_oa Part II. We are in our fourth year now of working to create this series together (it takes two years to write and make what is really an 8 hour film!) and every day I am still awed by his imagination, his stamina, his direction, his intuition and his compassion whether we are in the writers room, on set shooting, editing, or out and about in the real world trying to absorb what’s coming next. I feel so damn lucky to get to go to work every day with my best friend and the artist who inspires me most. Yesterday on set I was struggling to find my way inside the scene and he came over to me and whispered something in my ear and everything snapped into place on the next take. He has saved the story from falling off the rails on many occasions — some of which only I will ever know.
