filmmaker's note
Guest House, our newest "dramedy"/"comedrama", centers around something many people can relate to: being in your early-30s, dumped, out of a job, fired as head of your ex-fiancé's family business and living in your parents' guest house with a none-to-happy father constantly bugging you to get your act together. Okay, maybe not everybody can relate to that. But, most people have had a break-up or been stuck wondering what to do with their life, what's next in their career, and had our parents telling us to get off our you-know-whats and do something about it. Our film Guest House represents all these things in a fun and fantastical way while sticking to its very real emotional core. Relics from his past help Lance learn to grow up. And for every "Lance," there is also a father (or parental figure) frustrated by his son and who only wants what's best for his kid, but does not know quite how to communicate it. As the writer and director of the film, I relate to all these aspects of the film and what inspired me to bring this vision to life. I'm not saying that everybody has had their childhood room come to life to tell them to grow up, but I do think that most people can find a piece of this film and plug it right into a piece in their life. And that is why I want people to come with me into the Guest House.
