Director Statement

"I want to make people laugh no matter what. My style of comedy is usually strange and awkward humor that breaks the laws of reality. I like to make make characters act really dumb and exaggerated a times to show the audience that the films I produce are not meant to be taken seriously in the slightest. The plot to these films are also very bizarre and usually spawn from a random/dumb idea that is given much more thought than it deserves and eventually a completely original plot is formed from that."
"My best friend and I have always struggled with production quality since it has been just the two of us all these years with no budget besides birthday money, but I think we've managed just fine. The lack of expensive equipment has yet to hinder us from making a genuinely enjoyable and bizarre comedy with heart to it."
