Director Statement

It wasn’t my initial intention to make this film. However, I took a risk in stepping down from my regular dark and dramatic toned scripts and decided to step out of my comfort zone and write a comedy. Something that had never been successful in the past. I presented the initial idea of the Parkers’ to a fellow film club senior who was graduating who had a niche for writing comedies. He encouraged me to keep working on the idea, and I couldn’t be more thankful for his advice. I wanted to push myself hard in order to make this project come together the best it could.
Even though I loved this idea, I was consistently uncertain about how I should put my vision together. Therefore, I played with more ideas in the final draft of the script and went with the overall theme and style of an American sitcom. From the gestures, camera movements, and exaggeration, I tried to make sure all the gimmicks were not cringey, but realistic.
One of the main challenges I struggled with was the message of this film. Trying to find and convey a message in a comedy compared to a drama is a completely different thought process. In the end, I chose something relatable that almost everyone goes through in their life. “Everyone can be a little bit of a pain in the ass.” Everyone has that one person or multiple people in their life that can make it hard, but sometimes you wouldn’t have it any different.
