Director Statement

We shot this project at Baker McCullough Funeral Home in Savannah, GA. It was a final project for my good friend Jim Penola, a graduate student at SCAD. I was honored when he asked me to direct the short film.
Jim and I have been making films together since we were kids and our sense of humor and joy for filmmaking haven't changed one bit!
