Director Statement

We wanted to make this film as an exercise in minimalism, and then that in turn gave us an excuse to make it a huge production, so that's kind of what happened. It was personally my first fully produced short film from start to finish, with rehearsals, breakdown sheets, a full crew, sound design, score, and post effects, and I think it turned out great.
