Feedback Note Summary: KEEPING TIME is a truly well thought out piece, especially when the content is based on something as complicated as time travel. The writer had clearly done their research in terms of creating scenes that were cohesive even when toying with the idea of multiples of the same character from different timelines. The protagonist is one that keeps you rooting for them as they must overcome an antagonist of concept; time. A really fun piece to read through that could benefit with a few minor adjustments for clarity.

My inspiration to write, produce and direct The Decisive Moment, was to explore the inner workings of the creative process, a combination of a cartesian inspiration and a chaotic passion for the work to be done. The French photographer, Henri Cartier Bresson, seemed to have both and the results can be appreciated in his beautiful photographs. In order to represent what I believe was his creative process, I created two characters – Henri and Yvette (also the name of a famous French photographer). Their interactions lead the audience to glimpse into a reveling decisive moment.
