Director Statement

Middlegame was a challenge! The script took a long time to finalise and I wasn't able to cast my actors until it was almost complete, as I knew I'd need people who fit the character profiles I'd worked hard on. I got incredibly lucky with both Katie and Roger, and filming with them was an absolute delight! I was very nervous, this being my first short film and all, but they were so patient and inventive that it was an incredibly fun and rewarding experience. I have since spent a lot more time analysing film and would love to go back and do it all again so I could give it a better go with what I've learned. I'm immensely proud of my first effort, and hope that people enjoy watching it as much as we all enjoyed making it.
