Director Statement

Out Go the Lights was an idea I originally had the first inkling of in late 2015. I submitted an early script for the idea to the student committee in charge of selecting and green-lighting the "Student Initiative" films that would be produced in the second semester. Out go the Lights was passed up because it was too ambitious for first year, and so I gradually developed the idea over the summer until I once again submitted it in my second year. It was picked, and over 4 months from January to late April 2017, I worked on it with my crew. It premiered to a large crowd during the Sheridan BFTV Year-End screenings, and got a terrific response. I'm proud of how the film turned out, and I'm glad to see the efforts of everyone who worked on it pay off.
