Director Statement

It was 2016 and I found myself as a working actor without a job. No surprises there. Money was hard to come by and anything that I made went to classes and rent but the hardship of an actor’s life didn’t translate to work. I saw the same thing in my partner in crime Kate Lister, both of us living under the pressure of dreams, aspirations, and economy and trying to maintain a healthy relationship.
In an attempt to showcase our ability we decided to shoot a well-structured scene to show agents. Something happened, it was like a light bulb moment, we asked the question “why don’t we explore this world more” a world symbolically reflective of our own, a world where regardless of the characters intentions to do good, to be good, to create goodness their actions ultimately destroy the very thing that means the most to them, each other. Slowly, scene-by-scene 7 Storeys Down was created.
