Director Statement

This is a film made by young people, for young people. Taking a challenging look into the rippling casualties of mental health, the dangers of artificial intelligence, and an intense and realistic expression of grief. I wrote the screenplay for "Small Talk" over a 6 month period, rehearsed it over 2 months, and shot it all within one single night. The film was shot with a cast and crew of only 5 people, and has been our collaborative passion project. All of the young people involved within this film are immensely passionate about the messages of the film, especially those surrounding the effects of mental health, and I am honoured to be working with a group of such immensely talented individuals. I hope you enjoy my film, and I hope it's themes and messages impact you as much as they did me.
