“Rest” was shot in a New Jersey Mobil station’s mens’ room. I was on a road trip with my family and I needed to go to the bathroom. After I finished, I said to my wife, “I need a few minutes to shoot the men’s room.” She said, “Ok, take your time.” I obviously married the right person.
Rest is one of the films that earned me the privilege of calling NTH award-winning. It won a Rosebud Award for 2009. The Rosebud Festival seeks to honor the innovative, experimental, unusual, and deeply personal in creative film and video making in the DMV. “The Tapes of My Father” from Season 1 of NTH won a Rosebud in 2007.
