Terence Sullivan says he decided to turn his book, “The Art of Being a Capstone,” into a documentary film in order to capture the passion of her work and her unique way of working.
“I felt like it was my responsibility to take a break and tell this story, and I did that,” Sullivan told Vice News.
Sullivan has written a number of acclaimed novels, including “Fancy” and “Sisters,” which were both nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. “
The film will tell the story of her journey, from the time she was 15 years old and living in San Francisco, to the time that she moved to New York, to where she is now, and where she’s headed.”
Sullivan has written a number of acclaimed novels, including “Fancy” and “Sisters,” which were both nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
He also wrote the short story collection “The Lonesome Crowd.”
“My wife and I decided that this was something we would do for ourselves, and it was a very difficult decision, but ultimately, the writing was done,” he said.
“This is my wife’s story, so it was just a matter of making sure we made it happen.”
Sullivan says he spent months planning his film, and in the end, the decision was a no-brainer.
“The story was about what I love about writing, it was about writing stories that I like, and writing stories I’m passionate about,” he explained.
“And it was very hard to write that story that I was passionate about.
It was very tough.”
Sullivan is hoping to film in New York and Los Angeles in the coming months, but has yet to finalize locations.
“My wife has so much love for New York City and L.A., so we wanted to capture that in a film that captures the vibe and the energy of that city,” he added.
