Director Statement

"Kathy with a K" was brought to my attention by my dear friends and actors Candace Kirkpatrick and Tina Gallo. I grew up loving the Carol Burnett show and this short, which they asked me to direct for them, gave me the opportunity to take two great actresses and do a short comedy film that was like a skit similar to that of Vicki Lawerence and Carol Burnett. It is an honor to make people laugh and forget their troubles just for a moment. This back and forth about the return of a coat with a disgruntled shop employee is a scene we have all lived. With a great DP, a great location and the two actresses we pulled off a moment of fun for everyone.
