A homegrown dreamer that moved away in the midst of college times and other-than-Memphisly exploration, Melissa and family came back out of necessity, but found a different city. People were breathing life into their crazy ideas and that showed hope for making her dream of film making happen. Not in L.A., but in the big 901 instead. First “John’s Farm” in 2013 and this year with “The Department of Signs and Magical Intervention” which you can catch at this year’s Indie Memphis.
