Director Statement

As a young filmmaker, I am humbled and in awe of every opportunity, we have to see the world in a new way. This film marks my first (of hopefully many) narrative works while providing an outlet for me to showcase my own personal journey. The actors in this piece showed me what it was like to truly let your inner child shine. We had limited resources but all in all, we made a beautiful piece that my small crew of four is very proud of. Hopefully, this inspires you to howl into the endless abyss while frolicking in the woods.
