Director Statement

True Bromance was a lot of fun, and a little bit uncomfortable to make. I spent many years writing comedy sketches, and I wanted to ensure that this film had some comedic relief and fun moments. I thought that the concept itself would inherently lend itself to some fun moments, which it did with Gary. I was not expecting the more touching moments that occurred when I met Spencer and learned about his past. It was interesting to see the wide spread of people using the friendship app, and we were careful to make sure that was represented in the film.
