Director Statement

The success of this film rests squarely on the shoulders of the all student crew and a professional cast. My promise to them before they signed on was that I would treat them with respect and the set was fun and stress free

We set out to execute a 98 page script, shooting in four weeks. This is not a suggested way of producing a film, but because of our low budget, it was necessary. After we wrapped, my friends were still my friends, and in the end, we produced something we can be proud of, a feature film that makes an audience laugh. All while not going over 10 hours on any given production day since we were a Screen Actor's Guild production.
