Director Statement

This film is deeply personal to me. It is inspired from my own high school experience of being a shy and anxious young woman surrounded by intense and nagging boys. At the time I was in high school, social media and technology were really taking off and everyone used and abused to their advantage, some certainly more than others. To my advantage, I used the text messages I received and channeled it into a script and eventually a short! I wanted to create and share this film because I think it's important to show what most young women in high school go through in hopes that there be change, of course with a horrific twist.
