We Were Alone

It is post apocalyptic earth and two survivors are destitute and alone, or so they thought. Prior to the destruction of earth, scientists in a lab created a super human hybrid from a combination of human and wolf DNA. It was intended that these hybrids were to assist humans in catastrophic events. During the apocalypse, the lab was destroyed before the program was completed. The male and female prototypes survived and escaped. Instead of being allies to humans, they were overcome by their wolf instincts.

Director Statement

Making this film was an incredible experience. It was written, directed and filmed in 3 hours. Being on set and directing, is one of the most exhilarating experiences. Everything else in life is completely silenced, and the only thing that exists, is whats in front of you and around you while filming. The only other thing I can compare it to is sailing on a sailboat. It requires such focus, that it drowns the rest of the world out.
