Director Statement

'Wasps and the Rain' was an opportunity for me to experiment with my filmmaking style to create a very messed-up trip into the mind of a normal everyday guy. The film contains messages of manipulation and gaslighting that are used against the protagonist in order to feed the antagonist's capitalistic ambitions. It's a type of story that I've never done before. But, for better or for worse, I've had a blast with it.
