Director Statement

The Exigency took 13 years to make because I failed so many times and I'm also just crazy. By the end, I rendered 201,600 frames with over 1,800 individual shots (not including deleted scenes) created across 3 computers. I'm very aware that this is not Pixar or professional in the least because that would have taken another 40 years. I just wanted to make something over-the-top and ridiculous that didn't take itself too seriously. It isn't for everyone but I enjoyed creating it either way.
