WAITING FOR A RIDE

 

About

Logline

A janitor gets off his graveyard shift and waits for his usual bus home when a mysterious message kicks off a series of confrontations that challenge his comfortable routine. Will he stand up and make a move, or has his serial deference already sealed his fate?

Director's Statement

Hesitation, procrastination, indecision. These are a few of my personal battles, and at its heart, this is what Waiting for a Ride is about. What happens when an insatiable creative force meets the fear of making the wrong choice? 

 

To truly expand, and create something out of nothing, takes so much effort. It’s difficult to trust your instincts and experience when you are attempting something you’ve never done before, and that fear of the unknown can be paralyzing. 

 

That fear for me manifests itself in questions of doubt. Should I really try this? Am I doing the right thing? Is it a waste of time? Will anyone care? Because I do. When I am honest with myself, I really do care, and I am not very good at pretending otherwise.

 

So to make Waiting for a Ride, I made the choice to lean into that care, respect that energy and channel it into my creativity. I decided to press against stagnation and take that step forward with the understanding that once my foot had landed, I’d be back where I began, and the battle would have to be won all over again.
