Director Statement

I saw a flyer for the NYC Public School Film Festival. The due date was in five days, and I had no cast or crew, but I knew I wanted to send something in. So I made a stop motion short film with two paper birds, submitted it, and got into the festival.

This short film means so much to me because it's the first short I ever wrote and directed.
