Director Statement

"This short film came about because we thought it would be fun to get together with some of our creative friends and make something really off the wall and bonkers. The added challenge of only having 48 hours to complete the film was invigorating and allowed us to think creatively in different ways. We hope the audience has as much fun watching it as we did making it!"
