Filmmaker’s statement

I made this film as a tribute to my cousin Jodie who passed away tragically just over two years ago.

This film encapsulates a moment in her life when she realized she was destined for the stage, but it would not be an easy journey. Her strength, determination and kindness made her who she was.

I am grateful to be able to share Jodie’s memory with the world through this film.

  1. Jodie and Adam were like brother and sister. He courageously made this movie in her honour, with dignity and humour. There must have been many times when the beautiful memories of this beautiful girl brought him to tears. But you did it Ad, Jodie and I are bursting with pride and gratitude.
    We love you.
    (yay, a movie all about me!) Jodie
