Director Statement

This is my largest project to date and one of my first attempts at narrative filmmaking. It was a long process of learning and adapting for me. I learned miniature building and dove back into the world of stop-motion animation, something I haven't done since highschool with Legos. I wanted to experiment and try new things to expand my creative ability.

One of my biggest goals with 17 Bulldozer Drive was to make something horrifying and surreal while still being accessible. I have a lot of admiration for children’s horror media like Goosebumps, Gremlins, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and other media that gave me nightmares as a kid. They showed me things I had never been shown and allowed me to access the horror genre at a young age. So I hope that this film allows folks of all ages to get lost in the tiny surrealist suburbia I’ve created.
