My husband, Chris Friesen, follows his every interest and goal with a steadfast determination that I've never seen in anyone else. He's an amazing self-taught filmmaker and VFX artist. It is my privilege to work with him on our films. His level of discipline and focus is remarkable. He reminds me that interest and inspiration alone aren't enough: if I want to make a thing, I have to do the work to make the thing, not just talk about it.
