Henry was two months old when we shot A Strange Brand of Happy. Here we are on my first day off during the 26 day shoot.


Fast forward 20 months and both the boy and the movie are now out in the world mixing it up. 


As a parent (and filmmaker) you do your best to help form your kid (movie) into the best version of himself. You hope people like him, but prepare yourself for the reality that some won't. And that's ok. In the end, what really matters (both in parenting and filmmaking) are the shared experiences and stories you pick up along the way.
