Director Statement

Thanatos was a massive undertaking. Our biggest project to date and our toughest vision to bring to life. Completely new territory for us. Many months of preproduction, several months of rescheduling shoots, and an amazing group of people that we were lucky to have on our film. They’re the true stars. It was a very difficult film for us in terms of logistics and execution but we’re very proud of it and of our team. Like usual, we’re already at work on our next film!
