Director Statement

I shot this short during sequestering at the end of last year and the beginning of 2021 using my husband and myself as the actors. The second scene is green screened in my studio upstairs. The characters Josie and Vince are in my new longer screenplay "Cock Robin" that I'm working on turning into a feature length film. The experiment in B&W was to see how it would effect the feeling of the relationship. Thank you for your consideration!!
