Director Statement

"Monster Care" was one of 5 short films selected to be produced by OutFest LA's 2019 OutSet program. The short was filmed over the course of a single 12 hour day and boasts an almost entirely LGBT cast and crew.

While the aesthetics of the film call back to 50's B-horror and 80's creature features, the main story was inspired by Timothy's personal experience as a gay kid growing up in a very conservative religious household. Behind the werewolves and horror homages, the core of the film is a story about parents learning to accept their children.
