Director Statement

After binging all of The Office I had the idea to write a comedic story about two women moving in together. I wanted the characters to be relatable and real. I also wanted to do something different by bringing in the thriller aspect with the ghost. I loved the idea of the ghost being the typical lazy Halloween costume of a sheet over a person, this fuelled the comedy for the film. The characters are very close to my heart and in many ways reflect myself. I wanted to make something that made people laugh. The final production is something that I am proud of, I have poured a lot of myself into it and hope that people like it too.
