Director Statement

Immersion is a key component in this story. The camera, lighting, and sound were all carefully considered to accomplish this goal. I wanted this film to feel like we are there in the middle of combat with them, feeling the intensity a lot of soldiers have experienced.

I hope you enjoy this short film! Thanks for watching it!
