Director Statement

We set out to make a film that focuses on characters and through the dialogue tell a universal story that can hopefully relate to most people that watch it. Completely made over the course of two days, it focuses on the relationships between the characters as they go through various situations in their respective lives. We strived to show that the rawness of life does not necessarily take away from its meaning and the beautiful moments it grants us. We hope that you find Marshmallows not only entertaining, but moving and thought-provoking. Thank you for your consideration.
