In eighth grade, I used to fancy becoming a writer and filmmaker. When Trieu booked a session film with me, she made my dreams come true by giving me full creative license. I brainstormed a plot (that involves a solo actress!) and ran the idea by her. She was fully on board and showed up with her own take for costume and props. I cannot be more proud of the film we created, all in one take!
Special thanks to Bonfatto’s for letting us film at their beautiful cafe!
Honestly, I can’t take any credit for the romantic, whimsical, and sweet tone of our short film. Trieu is a natural in front of the camera. I love her interpretations of the storyline I presented her – all props are her own doing! And the best, sweetest touch is incorporating a love letter from her husband Dave. Not only did he handwrite the letter, he also provided his voiceover. I felt like a gushing schoolgirl when I heard him read the letter aloud. Trieu and Dave share such a sweet love, and I hope I was able to portray that in the film above and images below. ❤️
