Director Statement

STILL is a departure from the usual films I make. My style is mostly known for comedy (Living in 8 Bits, Moot, Nerd vs Geek) or sentimental dramedy (No Footing). I then was the DP and Editor on the short films Connie and Vessel, both of which were outside of my usual comfort zone. I was so happy with the look and style that I wanted to dive back into the thriller genre.

STILL was funded through ad revenue from our YouTube channel and sales from our Living in 8 Bits DVDs utilizing a talented pool of artists and actors in the Philadelphia region. I hope that you enjoy the film as much as we enjoyed making it! Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Michael Licisyn
