Director Statement

In creating An Afternoon at The Beach, I was inspired by the French pantomime comedy films of the 1950s, specifically the films of Jacques Tati. Thus it is also filmed in a similar manner, a 4:3 ratio featuring color and black and white scenes and light comedic pantomime humor. I hope you enjoy my debut short film, created on a miniature budget amidst the Pandemic , and I look forward with honor to have it screen and participating in your film festival.
