Director Statement

Many years in the making, this is a true story filmed as it happened. I wanted to put Willard’s beautiful art on the screen as it was being created, set to great rock music, while digging into the issues of talented, capable artists facing obstacles to success. During filming, some very interesting events surfaced that extended the filming. I realized that this story was developing a life of its own. Also, the great original music we found for the film sound-track kept us inspired. After the investor fallout, when they got the new location for the gallery show gala with the musicians, it seemed Willard and John Felix were on their way. Yet more obstacles popped up. The story kept unfolding before my eyes, so I kept filming and editing. Making this film has been a great experience, heartbreaking at times, and will hopefully inspire other artists around the globe.
