Director Statement

The premise for this film was actually meant for a 1-minute action film project that required a specific line of dialogue, but after work shopping ideas for about and hour or two we decided our idea for an action-comedy deserved a lot longer than a minute. We were heavily inspired by action films like KungFu Hustle, Dead pool, and of course any of Jackie Chan's films. Being able to work with the biggest cast and crew I have yet was an amazing experience and it brought so much more inspiration and talent to the table.
