Director Statement

Fantasy Pony follows the story of three horse girls as they prepare for the Annual Calypso Township Model Horse Show. This competition means everything to these girls and they will stop at nothing to win the competition, even if it means sacrificing their friendships. I wanted to play with the mockumentary style and blend in traditional storytelling elements. This is a film about friendship and being apart of something bigger than yourself. It is an homage to growing up in the ’90s and early 2000s.
I had so much fun working on this story, I hope you enjoy it and laugh as much as I do. Thank you!
