Director's statement

Several years ago, a script titled ELIZABETH BLUE IS OTHERWISE ENGAGED came across my desk. It was a comedy. Considering I suffer from a rare form of schizophrenia in which I not only hear and see hallucinations but they are also tactile, meaning I can touch and be touched by them, I didn't exactly find it to be a laughing matter. But after reading the script I was drawn to one particular storyline that focused on a young woman suffering from schizophrenia while trying to plan her wedding. I decided to do a page one rewrite incorporating a time in my own life in 2010 when all of my medications failed. It's my hope that this film will open people's minds about mental illness and start a much needed dialogue, specifically about schizophrenia and the struggle for not only those who live with it but also for those who love them and can often feel isolated. Because not knowing when life is real can really suck
