Director Statement

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT (GREG ROLA):
"I had a great time working with the cast and crew on this project. It was my pleasure to bring 'Stripped' to life and watch everything come together".

CREATOR'S STATEMENT (MATKAI BURMASTER):
"I created Stripped to explore the idea that sexuality isn’t as black and white as people make it out to be. I wanted to showcase a character that doesn’t have it all figured out and I wanted to present the ideas generated by the Kinsey scale in a new way that provoked thought and challenged viewers to see their own sexuality and the sexuality of others with an open mind.”

PRODUCER'S STATEMENT (DEANNA WIDMEYER):
“The journey from script to short film with Stripped has been a true pleasure. Thanks to a team of passionate individuals, the story, themes and characters of Stripped have touched more people than I could have imagined. Playing these characters in a way that makes them real and relatable in a short like takes nothing less than a true passion for acting and storytelling.”
