About this submission

The idea for this film stemmed from me entering a very new stage in my life. I thought I had made the wrong decisions regarding a breakup at the time and thought I had to live with all the negative consequences. I kept questioning whether I could've done things differently, convincing myself that things would've be better if I had. I was stuck in the "grass is greener" mindset for a long time until a close friend of mine explained to me the good things I had in life that I couldn't yet see. He simply stated the obvious to me: "The grass is green."

Hi I'm Chris, a 22 year old filmmaker and recent UC Santa Cruz grad based in Santa Cruz, California. Besides having a lifelong love for filmmaking, I also have a passion for teaching and education.
