Director Statement

How many other films do you know that can explain the meaning of life with waffles and bacon? Literally, stop motion animation breakfast foods will tell you about God, the universe and everything. I set out to make a movie that would both entertain and give audiences something unique to think about. I hope people enjoy this zany comedy following our effervescent angel, our well-meaning, washed-up rocker and our curious and conflicted demon as they search for their places in the world.
This is my first narrative feature film, made for nothing, pieced together with donated bagels and pizza, called in favors and free college student labor. No one got paid, and if they did, it wasn’t enough. Now that I’ve completed this micro budget rite of passage, I’m ready to sit in darkened art house theaters and hopefully hear a chuckle or two. I will be eternally grateful to all the people who came together to make this movie happen; from my fellow Gorilla producers who have been in it from the beginning, to the college kids who spent weeks learning and living life on set, to the Asheville small business owners who opened their door to us and the talented professionals who believed in the project enough to be put through the ringer on our indie film shoot.
