Director Biography - Wes Worthing

I have a degree in Broadcasting. My excitement to tell stories through audio eventually evolved into telling stories visually. I'm always trying to improve as a Director, and the first step was to remove the "too many hats" I was wearing and instead surround myself with talented crew. For the production of Wilt I was fortunate to have the best crew I've ever worked with.

Director Statement

"Symbolic subtlety" is the easiest way to describe the tone of Wilt's narrative. We present a cynical character enduring the stages of anger, depression, and denial after coming to terms of being ghosted. We then watch her rebuild - facing her storm at a windowsill, getting nutrition through eating, getting intellectual 'nutrition' through reading, organizing her apartment (life), self-pleasure (loving herself), letting herself rest, until finally pushing through a flashback with overlapping blurred memories and watching her lover reach the end of the tunnel (acceptance).
We hope our film will impact viewers to not judge their own grieving and instead let it happen regardless of how ugly it can seem at times. There's always light at the end of the tunnel.
