Director Statement

I made this film just so an audience can have some fun for 6 minutes and then go back to regular programming of doom and gloom. I had a lot of fun figuring out the way I like to film. I love that my production designer made that sign in the bar made entirely of dance moves to really solidify this is a world that communicates in dance. The colors were a fun element to play with, I used Red to be Fabricio color and Blue to be Baby’s color and when they finally come together we go purple. Anyways hope you enjoy it!!
