I was served by a wonderful weather (after a month of rains in LA!!!), which allowed us to finally film BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, a script I wrote and rewrote soooo many times (and still think of a couple of rewrites I could do :-S). This is the first script I ever wrote for another director to take over and bring his vision on. I usually direct my own projects. Words seem so lame compared to the intense gratitude I feel for our talented multi-national award-winning director Marco Bottiglieri and our producer Ashla Soter who made it happen and to our crew and my co-star Sam Lucas Smith part of this project.
I also need to thank Olivier Ciappa, Katya Mokolo, Christophe Deroo, and James Kacey for their help and contribution in the origins of this project.
BETTER LATE THAN EVER: Wisdom Tree, L.A, California. A young woman receives a mysterious invitation to peace from her estranged father hoping to reconnect. A young man celebrates a birthday, alone. The two strangers meet…
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER still, starring Melissa Mars & Sam Lucas Smith
