Close to Home...

A Note from the Filmmaker

The production of this film was a true team effort. The film came to life because of Melissa Elsmo, Vice President of The Day Nursery Board. When someone as giving as Melissa asks for a favor, the first this you say is, "of course," and the second thing you ask is, "what is the favor?"

She was a key teacher in my own early childhood education, so it was beyond fitting to pay it forward to The Day Nursery.

I am also grateful for my hardworking and loving wife, Katie Dunn, who helped on every shoot, edit and revision.

And thank you to the countless other volunteers who transcribed interviews, carried equipment, and helped when our car broke down (thanks, Leif!). My hope is this short film does justice to the magic of The Day Nursery: its essential services, devoted staff, grateful families, and beautiful history.

With Gratitude,

I have never been quite this proud of a collaborative project before. There are no words to express my gratitude for Molly and Cape Creative to help tell this important story. This evening we premiered the film to a room full of guests. It was an honor to play a small part in making the film and an honor to present it publicly for the first time.
