Director Statement

This was a student film produced for a film class at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA under the supervision of professor/filmmaker Rob Richert. It was wonderful and challenging to write and shoot this film. I've always been fascinated by the unknown impact of our actions. And to convey the idea of counter-factual states of affairs being triggered by the free acts of people is not as easy to do as I first thought. I'm very proud of the effort given by my cast and crew and hope you enjoy it!
