Experiencing Interruptions?


My latest short film, FOIL, is a micro-short that works with the themes of health (mental and physical) and technology. It explores the many definitions of the word FOIL which has at least 7 different meanings.

I've been working in fits and starts with this piece for a couple of months and this piece weirdly fell into place. That's what happens when you work intuitively. It can help you wrestle with the human existence and channel some anxieties into a tangible thing. That's what art is for, and if it can help someone else not feel alone, even better. I'm honestly very ready and happy to put this piece to bed. It's cathartic and helps get the gunk out.

This piece is inspired by some real-life Syfy and some of my favorite Spielberg and Kubrick films.
