We wrapped #LongStoryShort yesterday 🎞
I had the absolute pleasure of working with these angels who I am now lucky enough to call my friends. I can’t express my appreciation enough.The script, the cast, the crew, the magic 💫it was a complete gift. Thank you to the incomparable @thatjoshlawson for writing one of the best scripts I’ve ever read, truly, for being an equally brilliant director, friend and compassionate super human.You’re such an inspiration. Rafe Spall (who’s too cool for Instagram) you have taught me so much and made me laugh endlessly. You’re generous spirit, kind heart and excellent taste in music is equal to your insane talent, I’ll miss working with you so much.To my darling makeup artist @milsy___ I love you - thank you for making me feel like Becka, you’re a light in this industry and your calming energy was a joy to be around.To the genius that is @mtcinematography I loved watching your passion, You’re a visionary, thanks for answering all my questions and encouraging my curiosity in filmmaking.So much love to the rest of the cast and crew 🌈 and yes I’m emotional today..because every time something I love comes to an end I get the blues 💔art and stories are everything to me and this one is so important. I felt so lucky to be in it, it was such a serendipitous event.
I can’t wait for you all to see this film and the significant message behind it.. here are some things I’ve learnt over the past month: Goals do not make you happy; growth does. 💫 stop wasting time, life is short & precious and time is so sacred, call the people you love and tell them! Tell them every single day. Give compliments and speak your truth- you never know when it may be too late 🙏be kind it’s fucking easy 🤷♀️
Happiness is an inside job; no one is responsible for it but you. Appreciation destroys suffering. Playfulness, joy and gratitude will trump any other emotions in your life. Trade your expectations for appreciation. Reasons come first. Answers come second. Be patient. Celebrate the small wins. YOU DO NOT NEED AN EXCUSE TO FEEL GOOD. Life is happening for you not to you. Mostly, show gratitude every single day.Love is the oxygen of life 💫❤️
