Director Statement

'Kevin needs to make new friends (because everyone hates him for some reason)' started out as an absurd premise but during development the characters came alive in a lot of unexpected ways. It was important for me to make a film that was more than just an elaborate sketch so detailed backstories were created for all of the characters no matter how small the role. Everyone has their reasons for their hostility and Kevin became the conduit for them to vent their frustrations from their own lives. Through the film Kevin learns to stand up for himself because otherwise people will push him over for their own self-gratification. Unfortunately this is not a lesson that grants instant results.
