“With over one hundred and ten hours of footage, editing a documentary film can be an extremely daunting task. Without any real strategy in mind, I began editing while we were still in the shooting process by focusing on moments that really warmed my heart or made me laugh. I pieced together these short clips not really knowing where, or if, they would fit into the film.

With slight revisions, most of these pieces did make it into the final film. Here are the original versions of these scenes, along with short explanations of what inspired me about these moments.”
