Director Statement

I've always loved the classic musical films from the 50's and 60's, and it's where I've drawn a lot of my inspiration for this film, 'k-209'.
I wanted to incorporate that classic musical feel with a modern twist so to say, having the film set in the future.
Dustin Shaffer (k-209) and Caileigh Reid (RED) brought a tremendous amount of passion and commitment to the dance as you will see. I am so grateful for their commitment, plus the choreography of Jackie Taylor who brought this beautiful dance to life. I'd also like to acknowledge Al Gervais, our cinematographer, for giving this film that classic, elegant look.
I hope you see the uniqueness, care, and independent spirit we put into making it over these past two years.
