Director Statement

Be Mime is a short comedic film about misunderstandings and communication. The Tagline “How do you say the right thing, when you can’t say anything at all?” only reflects one of the main barriers of communication in the film, the literal idea that you must send a message without voice and have be received and understood. The other side of this is perception, how we perceive messages being sent to us and how easily these messages can be misunderstood. What results of a funny tale of two people who just can’t communicate with each other and the hilarity that can come with simple misunderstandings.
