Director Statement

This movie represents a lot, the story itself is a collision of emotional study and perspective, the boundaries are endless in regards to how you can take this film. The stylistics are influenced by the cartoons me and the team watched growing up (90s-2000s), we wanted it to be authentic to it's influences with some real music behind it too like the shows we was in awe of as kids. I'm really excited to share this piece, i know it's far left of what people are expecting!
