In 2003, I wrote The Year I Did Nothing, with the intention of shooting it on location in the Philippines. Unfortunately, weeks before the start of production, our funding fell through and we never made the movie.
In 2018, I revisited my script and realized that its theme feels more relevant now than ever before, in light of what's going on in the world. And given my personal connection with the story, I became more determined than ever, to shoot my 15-year old script.
In the summer of 2018, we made The Year I Did Nothing.
