Director Statement

"This film originally started as a simple short for a production class of mine and quickly grew to become so much more. Shooting on older equipment was a learning curve (as we shot on a sony Mini-DV camcorder) but I'm extremely happy with how this turned out. I'm very proud of our small cast and crew and appreciative of everything they did during the entire production process, and I'm very excited to share this short with other audiences!"
