Director Statement

We wanted to create a late night atmosphere and accomplished this with low lighting and blocking out all the windows with large pieces of cardboard. I really like the way the two actors go in and out of the light and the blocking developed naturally around the kitchen island. Making use of the practicals gave it a very warm orange tone that lends an intimate, revealing feel to the encounter. Taking a break and going into a room where the bright daylight flooded in made the set feel even more like a cloistered hothouse of emotions.
