Director Statement

When coming up with the concept for “Scarades”, I had a pretty clear picture of what I wanted it to be. A small-scale, easy to shoot short film, that would be a mix of comedy and horror, something I’ve never done before. Yet quickly, this became so much more.

Working with my amazing crew, we made a simple concept into something quite impressive for a film this small-scale. Production was even better, the actors nailing their lines and improving upon scenes I thought to be completed, was amazing to be apart of.

This film will always be special to me because of this experience, and working with close friends on something we all were enthusiastic about was a thrill. Hopefully, viewers can sit back and enjoy an amusing and intriguing story to remember.
