Artists tend to reverse roles and here, Maggie brings home the bacon by playing a bit part in a cheesy Internet show, while Mike stays home taking care of their son and preparing low-fat dinners. In the meantime, he’s writing a script and foraging for roles, a task that would be easier if he could leave the child home. Even for an hour… In his directorial debut, Gregory Collins asks questions that perturb most thirty-somethings: is it possible to balance your professional ambitions, freedom (not just artistic) and the demands of home? The director filters the story through a personal lens: "In retrospect, I think I started writing this the night my first daughter was born," Collins told SRQ Backlot in an interview.
Collins was born and raised in Kenya. He has worked in film and film production for over ten years on films including Infamous, Sin City, The Quiet, and Elvis & Anabelle. Gregory co-wrote and co-produced Melvin, which is a tense character study about a young man coming undone. A Song Still Inside is Gregory’s first feature film.
