SB: Dating Sucks: A Genderqueer Misadventure


SFTFF: What was the inspiration for your film? 

SB: I really needed a kick in the pants to get off the couch with the cat and sweatpants and start dating-- what better pressure than making a film about it?

SB: I am REALLY REALLY good at first dates now!


SFTFF: If your film had to be summed up in one song, what song would it be? 

SB: "Queen of Quiet" by Erin McKeown <-- (She's given me permission to use the song in the trailer for the film-- coming soon!!)
