Thank you to the incredible audience last night for coming out late and supporting my film #Rabid It was screened @screamfestla for it’s very first North American premiere. I have been producing and shooting my own film in Toronto, Canada and wasn’t scheduled to attend. However, schedules aligned and I thought the best way to support my film was to buy a ticket like everyone else did, secretly sit in the audience with friends and surprise the attendees! In fact, I bought eight tickets to represent the actors that weren’t in attendance and to honor them as a unit of artists! It was lovely meeting you all. . ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ . More importantly, here’s to the cast & crew whom worked so hard & deserved to be there, especially our other three leads (Ben, Hanneke, Mackenzie).
