Director Statement

I believe as a society our ideals are confined within a box. We do as we are taught and don’t challenge the structure. With Bre’s Company, I wanted to create characters that test our view of societal norms.

There’s tons of times within relationships where people fantasize about being with someone else, but have no desire to leave their partner. They just need a little extra support that monogamy neglects. They live their lives stuck in a bubble of other people’s perceptions on how a relationship should be. They allow society to tell them how their lives should be. This is a feeling of imprisonment that’ll lead to unhappiness.

In addition to our polyamorous relationship’s perspective we get to see the outside looking in standpoint. The film exists to point out a bias in our society in how we view love and try to confine the ideals into monogamy being the only way. Imagine opening your relationship from the restrictions of monogamy. How would you grandparents feel? Would your parents accept it? “If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.” - Audrey Lorde

I wanted to feel the excitement this couple gets for stepping beyond the bounds of the general viewpoint. I wanted to feel their nervousness. I wanted to feel their strain from social perception. And most importantly I wanted to feel what it felt like to fail. Because through failure we often learn our deepest life lessons.
