Director Statement

I started this script as a tribute to my childhood when I would play pretend with some of the other children at my daycare where I would imagine this ginormous world. The possibilities of what we could do where limitless. I want to convey the whimsy of playing pretend as well as address how the younger generation tends to lean more to electronics to keep them busy instead of letting their amazing imagination run wild.
