Director Statement

This short was really a learning experience for me. I learned not only abut myself but about others. I hope people watch this movie, especially kids my age, possibly find some similarities in this movie to their life. The world Im growing up in everyone is in their devices. People don't talk to others as much as they used too, everyone is sucked into watching mindless content they cant remember 5 seconds later. As someone who is slowly overcoming the addiction of my phone my life has changed for the better in countless ways. I just want people to have the same thing. I hope people feel something from watching my movie. Thank you! and Hope you enjoy.
