"Incredible Girl is a series based on my short film with the same title. In that film I looked at the moment of change in a person's life. I wanted to see the force that causes a change and the moment a person decides to let that change happen. (You can see an article here that goes more in depth.)
Because viewers kept saying they wanted to see what happens next, I had it in the back of my mind to continue the story. When I met Teresa, I knew she was the person to continue the story with. The series picks up the film's themes about breaking free from the norm and being bold in your own skin even if it doesn't work for the people around you. It's about taking ownership of your life, pushing your own boundaries and doing things that scare you. The more people we see living like this, the more it gives us permission to be that way too. It's a series made to inspire, enflame and titilate someone to get up and do something instead of lurking in the shadows hoping one day something interesting will happen. It's also a project about radical acceptance of things we may not like about ourselves or others. I know this has been something I've grappled with (and continue to do so) and I do believe our viewers will be able to connect because of that.
I love this project. I think we're doing something beautiful here."
