Director Statement

This short was a real pleasure to make and we're all so proud of the result. We came together on the BFI x BAFTA crew network: none of us had worked together before. It was incredible to see how enjoyable it can be to work with a team of such talented, committed people on both sides of the camera. Sticking to the 60 second time limit was great fun and you can bet we'll be making more of these in the future!
