Director Statement

When typing in the genre's for this site, I realized we made an Arthouse Fantasy Western. I think that is pretty cool.

I wanted to give the artists associated with the VAPA center and Charlotte Comedy Theater an opportunity to work on a film.

The VAPA center (Visual and Performing Arts Center) is a collective arts space in Charlotte, North Carolina. Most of the people involved in this project are associated with the VAPA center or Charlotte Comedy Theater (CCT.) CCT is an improv and sketch comedy theater and training center operating out of the VAPA center.

In enjoy it best when creative people get to develop a new skill set. Most of the folks who worked on this film it was doing their first film in the role they played. However, they had experience in something adjacent.

For example, of our two Head Writers, J.E. Brennan and Sophia Israel, J.E. had written many short dialogue driven short stories and Sophia had concentrated on sketch comedy. Our Cinematographer, Gloria Zavaleta has done multiple documentaries and music videos, but not yet a film.

A big exception is our Director of Photography, Brenton Bent. Brenton has directed and produced many films. I was pleased he joined our team. I think he an Gloria composed some great shots!
