Director Statement

Technical Difficulties arises from the fear of the strange noises TV and other technology of my childhood made. I remember as a child, the Emergency Broadcast Alert alarms would play in the middle of the night and I would run to my parents room screaming. Small noises and images are the inspiration of the tension in this film. Miranda Moffat offers a wonderful performance and plays a complicated and possibly unlikely character with empathy and intelligence. Newcomers Savannah Moffat and Kenneth Gajefski bring much needed levity to the film. I hope everyone else can appreciate the work and effort put into this film, and are entertained and possibly chilled by images and sounds it reveals.
