Director Statement

Climbing the infamously long flight of stairs to the men's dorm is such a common experience on campus that I wanted to capture that experience in an absurd, over-the-top film.

Everest is the first in a series of short films telling stories based on the college experience, each with differing genres and tones that in one way or another hint at the deeper things in life.
