Director Statement

For this film, I wanted submit something light hearted. A return to storytelling with as much of refined visuals I could create. I truly did complete this project in less than 3 weeks. It is a combination of a couple very short film ideas that I have had, but never completed. And therein lies the message to myself. You just have to complete it. No matter what.

Also equipment doesn't make the director.
