Director Statement

The concept for this film was born in September as I watched a video on the lighting in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. Something about the way the candles interacted with their environment sparked an idea in me that spread like wildfire.

I have worked on productions before, but this is the first film which I have fully made and produced by myself. Behind its surreal elements and heavy sound design, this film holds alot of personal value and I hope it reaches out to a few in the same way. It has set my path into the world of cinema and film production and I could not be prouder of this piece.
