Writer Statement

I am an avid lover of art and also Paris, making the setting of the short story an exceptionally opportunistic location to test out the meshing of deep relationships as well as psychosis somewhere that has the ability to enhance the scenes, and emotions present in them, throughout the somewhat script. I wanted the script to exhibit both surrealist image opportunities while also being able to flow alongside everyday images of Paris life.
