Director Statement

With a passion for using frugal hacks to make a short film shine its brightest, we pulled out a TON of tricks from our repertoire. Lightning, rain, makeup, and camera sliders faced frugal treatments and we hope that we can inspire others to create and not feel limited or restricted by small budgets. This project was utilized as a growing exercise, but we hope that the amount of fun we had making it shines through above anything else.
