Backyard Spring was my first solo film. I wanted to do a movie that I could film on my own, within the confines of a tiny budget, and within the scope of my immediate experience.
I decided to document Spring coming to my backyard. I began filming on the Spring Equinox in one of the biggest snowstorms of the year in Colorado. Perfect! It evolved into a tone-poem and a tribute to the magnificence of Gaia.
