Director Statement

This unique, quirky and fun comedy wound up growing into a feel of its own. The first two episodes were shot a few months before the last four episodes. As the writing and shooting progressed the characters also started becoming more defined and their relationships developed too. This was the first web series where I directed a full six episodes and I found it to be a great way to evolve not only the characters and story but also the overall “life” of the show. Shooting at the beginning was somewhat of a “Let’s find our way.” experience and as we approached the sixth episode it was more of “Everything is coming together like a good recipe.” Bursting out in fits of laughter on set was commonplace and creating this web series became pure joy.
