Today I screened the rough cut of my first feature film Aspie Seeks Love. I was so nervous! I’ve spent much of January and February holed away in the editing room, feeling the limits of my sole judgement more and more. That old conflict: I need more eyeballs, but no! It’s not ready yet!
Thus, I was honored and relieved when Rebecca Klaw, autism counselor and professor at the University of Pittsburgh, invited me to screen my rough cut for her “Autism in Film” class. I implored Klaw’s students for their brutal honesty and scored invaluable notes (I am a firm believer in the workshop and revision process). Also, some comments made my all-work-and-no-play ethic of late feel extra worth it!
