Even with Kevin Resnick, her life partner and business partner on the movie set, Lake Zurich native Rebecca Norris admitted that filmmaking can be a taxing undertaking.
So why does she do it?
"That's funny," she said. "In my last production I was asking myself the same question. Why am I doing this?"
"This is really hard, but I think it's the thrill of seeing the final product," she answered.
"When you go to a festival and you sit down in a dress and you see your film come up on the screen ... there's this thrill of accomplishment, knowing what it took to get there and seeing the final product.
"And, because it's a film and not a stage show, it lasts forever, theoretically. I love doing theater. But once the show is over, it's over. Film goes on forever."
