GS: What was the most challenging aspect of working in a short film format?

LS: Avoid dragging, avoid rushing, 

GS: What was the most challenging aspect of your production?

GS: Do you have any advice for first-time filmmakers?

LS: Just keep on doing what you love. The more you the more you’ll love it.
