In March 2020, my community went into strict lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. I, and many other artists, creatives and performers, lost work we were excited about and had been financially counting on.

Filmmaking and live theatrical performance have, like many industries, been abruptly interrupted by social distancing and the pandemic. I watched as friend after friend lost valuable employment gigs and hobbiest performance opportunities.
