"Knowing how to make a movie magnificent is a gift. How to capture an image technically is one thing, but how to tell a story is another. Kara is a huge part of the reason Hemlock Films produces the kind of movies that cuddle up to your heart, open your mind, and settle well in your soul."

I want the audience to feel something. If I'm not evoking emotion, I'm failing.

"It was a fantastic interview – Kara asked excellent questions and I appreciated her thoughtfulness in the entire production. I really enjoyed it and look forward to the finished film."
