Director Statement

Aerobitards is a passion project we've been developing for several years now. On the surface level, Aerobitards is a parody of a fitness program infomercial. But as you go deeper, you will discover a whole cultish world that lies beneath.

Our head writer, David, is an ex-Scientologist. Through his detailed descriptions of his experience in the church, we became very inspired to utilize some of the same intensity and strategies with which this infamous organization operates, to create something completely original. In David's own words: "Scientology has scarred the mind and psyche of the writer so deeply, we thought it would be cathartic to find the humor in it. Also, fitness has become such a huge and obnoxious industry, and very cult-like. Marrying the two just seemed right."

This video is just introduction to a much larger project and we just can't wait to share it with the world!
