Melissa challenges you as a writer/director because she’s always present. She processes every syllable for motivation, every angle for meaning, and when that camera turns on, she is nothing short of cinematic. Because of her integrity and commitment to story, we are all better people — our film is simply better because of her — and I’m grateful for every second I had to work with her. Although, in reality, it feels like she worked with me.
— Nick Cammilleri, writer/director of "Slide"
