Last Ride is released into the cinemas today. I never thought I would ever say this but I think the film is ready to be out there. I feel we have done everything possible to try and make the film, and it's release as good as it can be.
As much as I have fussed and fretted over every detail over the last year and half it's now time to cut the apron strings and ease the film out into the world. I think it's strong enough to look after itself.
It's a weird feeling, I can feel myself detaching from it, not that I care any less, I just know there is little more I or anyone else can do. It now just needs to be out there in cinemas so people can go and see and discuss and love or hate or what ever it is they want to do with it.
Regardless of success or failure from critics or the box office, personally I am so proud of the film and everyone who helped make it.
The last 5 years of development and in particular the last year or so where I have been on the film full time has been the most exciting, anxious, creative, stressful, inspiring, exhausting, humbling, terrifying, satisfying and ultimately the most privileged time of my life.
Every minute of it (even the really bad ones) has been a dream come true.
