@boybandfangirl @tricoastworldwide: What

@boybandfangirl @tricoastworldwide: What’s a defining moment in your life? There was a small but significant moment during the making of “I Used to be Normal” that stands out. I had just landed in Washington DC, traveling from Australia. It was 11pm, and the middle of summer, so it was dark, hot and humid when I got off the plane. I was traveling alone, with all my camera equipment, and I was exhausted. I got into my rental car and began driving to a tiny town in Virginia to do some filming the next day. I was driving on the opposite side of the road to what I’m used to, in a city I’d never been to, to convince people I didn’t know to appear on camera. I remember feeling both crazy and powerful. I thought about all the decisions that had led me to this moment, and all the risks Rita Walsh, my producer, and I, had taken. So many people had laughed at the idea, or tried to change my mind about the project, but I believed so strongly in it. To be on the other side of the world by myself, making a film about boyband fans, having raised just enough money to get me there, in that moment I felt like I could do anything.
