This is strangely hard to post. I’ve been avoiding sharing this because when I watch it, I see all of the flaws, all of the things I wish I could change. BUT. I’m never done learning, my art will never be perfect, and all I can hope is that what I create connects to someone and translates real emotions. I’m excited to be starting my career with a project that pushed me, that tells an LGBT story, that helped me find my voice as a director. Thank you so much to everyone who has given to this project, shared it with others, and waited for its release! 

THIS is One Night: a lesbian/drama short film, written & directed by me - Lydia Smyth

Those People - This movie fucked me up. So brilliantly done. A crazy roller coaster of emotions. One messy love triangle threatens to break everyone’s worlds. Charilie and Sebastion have been best friends for fifteen years and when Charlie meets a pianist named Tim everything gets thrown into a crazy whirlwind. I absolutely love Jason Ralph and am in love with Jonathan Gordon as well now. The casting was phenomenal and the friendships that were portrayed felt so real with how unique they all were. A must watch.

4th Man Out - Oh. My. God. This movie is gold. So amazing. Currently on Netflix and I am highly recommending it. The actors and actresses are amazing and beautiful, and the story line is so well done.This movie got me hooked within the first thirty seconds. It follows a young man named Adam (;D) coming out to three of his best friends and how they all handle it while trying to maintain the friendships they have always had.

Quand On A 17 Ans (Being 17) - I highly recommend this film. It is in French with English subtitles. Also currently on Netflix. Follows the relationship of two young men who are at ends with each other for no apparent reason other than not getting along. They are thrusted into each others lives and are needed to learn to make peace with one another. Serious issues in both of their lives trickle over to make an impact. This was beautifully done. Some nsfw as there is some nudity. I wish there was more but I’ll take what they give. I will definitely be rewatching this.
