Director Statement

My best friend Maya Baskin actually wrote this short film and I thought it’d be a great idea to direct and collab with her. The idea is inspired from all the ‘lack’ of drama going on in our lives, therefore as director I though the film should convey some of that and that mainly we should just have fun while making it because we deserve it after this horrible pandemic. Abernathy is a suspenseful short film made by two really bored girls who took the opportunity.
