Director Statement

Straight Edge Kegger is a big deal (to me) packed into a little package. The trailer that we've made is intended to spread the word about the idea and hopefully drum up some interest so that we can eventually make it into a feature. Despite the flick being a short, it took a lot of work to accomplish and was a pretty stressful shoot... as we were shooting primarily at several house parties and people were often too drunk to do what we needed.

Much like the punk ethos that comes across in the trailer, and even like the edgers donning masks, this was a collaborative effort that could not have happened without a dedicated group of friends who wanted nothing more than to help. I hope that you enjoy the flick, want to see the feature and can see all the hard work that the cast and crew put in.
