Lund met Killam when he was an actor on a short film she produced while attending Fitchburg State University.

Justice Is Mind: Evidence had its world premiere at the Strand Theatre in Clinton on January 20, 2012[3] and was subsequently picked up for distribution by IndieFlix.[4] In May of that year, Lund secured financing from Mary Wenninger and Stefan Knieling to produce the feature-length version.
