Director Statement

Let's Go Camping is a 19.5 minute comedy short film that follows three average teenagers who decide to go on a camping trip for which they are completely unprepared. Nearly two years from the idea to the big screen, my brother and I co-wrote, co-directed, and co-produced this film.

Our hope is that you enjoy the disastrous adventure of a trio of city teenagers who have no idea what they're doing. We had a lot of fun creating it, and we hope you have just as much fun watching it.
