"Patience" is based on my experience of having cancer last year (2013). For example, the footage of me receiving chemo treatment in the beginning is real. I started to create this short two weeks after my sixth and final chemo treatment and wrapped a few weeks after that.
It was made during the same time the short film takes place: chemotherapy is done, but you don't know if the chemo worked until a few months after your final treatment. It's an odd time, facing death. This short was very cathartic to make, it gave me a sense of control over a situation that feels out of control. Hope you enjoy it and share with those who you think it could speak to.
