Director Statement

When working low budget, very low budget, and DIY it's crazy what you can accomplish within the limitations. The show has been a great chance for me and my team to make a few mistakes here and there while playing around with a few storytelling techniques that are seen less and less these days. But just because a technique is out of fashion doesn't make it any less effective.

On a practical level, I could have made a short film and learned how to hone one approach to film making but taking the web series path really opened up the range of storytelling tools at play. This has lead to a varied tone between the episodes in the series, but when all's said and done I'm quite happy with what we achieved and look forward to what comes next.
