Director Statement

I just want to thank everybody who has made "The Moth" possible. I couldn't have done it without a single member of the extremely talented cast and crew. This film belongs to them. They took my idea and turned it into something I never could have imagined and I can't thank them enough. I hope everyone enjoys the film.
