JJ: What was the biggest hurdle you had to overcome as a first-time director?
AL: Getting the finances together to make a film as ambitious and challenging as Lullaby. After that I was so incredibly blessed to have the absolute best artists in front and behind the camera.
JJ: What was your most memorable off-screen moment with the cast?
AL: I had held it together the entire shoot but after we wrapped Robert’s (Richard Jenkins) death scene, I quietly slipped away from set and completely broke down. I thought I was alone, but when I looked up Garrett, Terrence and the rest of the cast were there with open arms to pick me up. They had followed me out, knowing too well what I was going through… I will never forget the love and compassion they shared with me in those moments.
JJ: What was your favorite lullaby as a kid and why?
AL: Brahms Lullaby. It set the table for my musical tastes.
