Director Statement

Laura Hartley, who brilliantly stars in and wrote this short first approached me, somewhat ironically I guess, with a text — “I wrote a short, wanna direct it?” “Uh, duh,” I said yes, but little did I know how important texting would be to this story. You see, Laura’s fears in an apocalyptic future don’t involve zombies, global warming, or even nuclear fallout. Oh no, her fears for the future of humanity lie in a deeper fear for the human race, one rooted in the men of this generation, and hopefully something we can snuff out for future generations. I’m honored to be behind the camera bringing this important message from the future to the present. Hope you enjoy.
