Director Statement

I made this film with my friends my last year of college. We started with ten ideas for short films and ended up shooting five. One was released online, and another saved until I can find a way to make it funnier. The remaining three were compiled into a single package and released as one.

The films were not supposed to have any sort of through line or appear to be directed by the same person. This aversion to personal style was mentioned in our short but pompous manifesto which –while having little to do with our actual motivations– was instrumental in convincing our university to give us funding. Most of the project was shot in a soundstage. Once we made a short trip out to Tompkins Square Park to capture the views of the pigeons. The hearse section was shot in a large warehouse upstate which shared a lot with the power company. Outside of the warehouse was a gargantuan pile of those huge reels made for spooling power lines. During lunch I got to go outside and say things like “hey anyone wanna check out my reel?” or “oh boy, looks like they need to reel it in.”
