Director Statement

In the summer of 2022, I generated an idea from a small clip from stranger things season 4. The idea had started to grow and became more and more of its own thing. At the time it was never really something I think I would make however when making it everything felt so right.

This was the second screenplay that I had ever written but the first that really gave me perspective on what writing is all about. I had the opportunity to let it grow and let everything that was happening around me find its way into the story. I didn't just get to learn about the origins of writing but I also got to see my own growth as a person.

All throughout Pre-production I was telling myself and others that this isn't a film I necessarily want to make but more of a film that I feel I need to make. I later found out the truth about this which is now a key part of my filmmaking.

This was definitely one of the biggest experiences of growth not just in my filmmaking but me and my life as a human being.
