Director Statement

This film was very much a freeform collaboration. We didn't really have much but an idea when we started(like most people) but our goal was to let everyone have total freedom with whatever they brought to the project. To elaborate, we relayed our idea to Andrew Lo(one of the most talented musicians we had the pleasure of working with!) and he wrote something and shared it with us. From there we shared that piece with Bailey and she choreographed a dance to it. Bailey mentioned our idea to a costume designer and she made something she thought would fit our idea, etc, etc. Spencer and I were in the drivers seat but we absolutely relinquished control in areas we knew very little. What we came up with at the end made us very happy, especially knowing that we let everyone involved just create something with no real limitations or 'rules'.
