It’s Time To Do Me

Michelle E’Toile, a former classmate of mine in the Masters in Humanities Program at Dominican University of California (she has since graduated), wrote a poem entitled ‘It’s Time To Do Me’ as part of a writing group that we started with several other students in the program. When I asked the group if anyone was willing to have their work adapted as video pieces, Michelle suggested we use this. I adapted it into a screenplay, and Michelle starred in the film as herself. A deeply personal work that capped off a journey of self-realization that Michelle had travelled on throughout her creative work for her Graduate Degree, this piece lent itself wonderfully to the moving image.
