Director Statement

The vision of this piece to take a unique look at nerd culture and in a counterintuitive manner, celebrate its embrace on society. The film also pulls from my love and interest in animation and my fascination with online culture's self-aware lens on what makes it good, bad, but most importantly, unique.
