Heather Fairbanks has wrapped her first film as writer/director, the short film “Borrowed.”    Created about women, for women and by women, “Borrowed” was a first film for #thatswhatshesaidfilms Productions.

Written by Heather Fairbanks,  starring Heather Fairbanks as Becca and Angel Matheson,  “Borrowed” is the tale of two strangers who meet in an unlikely place, begging the question:”was their meeting  more than coincidence?”

Said Heather, “We were honored to be granted access to the hallowed grounds of Franklin Cemetery amidst the stunning autumn landscape. It was a joy to act alongside the lovely Angel Matheson who delivered a heartfelt, truthful performance.

“I am indebted to my producer and DP Amber Elliott for her hard work in bringing together the talented crew within just two weeks time because of my insistence of getting it shot while the trees still had vivid color. This team (who had never worked all together and who came from different parts of the Midwest) pulled it off and I’m very hopeful that the end product will convey a relatable and timely story of loss and reaching out with compassion to others who cross our path.

“Grateful for Sullivan Matheson for her fabulous work as both MUA and script supervisor, for Claudia Neve for contributing her multi faceted talents with energy and enthusiasm, for sound guru Courtney Jerome for impeccably capturing the sound and for Debra Lev for taking the official behind the scenes pictures which will be shared from our official page within the coming days.

“Thanks to Sullivan Matheson for the majority of these behind the scenes cell pics. Can’t wait to create more films with many of you. I’ll be sharing more soon!
