Writer Statement

The idea for this script was to focus on the ennui that comes from settling into a boring office job you never expected to stay at when you were young and idealistic and then spice that up by adding some out of the ordinary. I wanted to turn boring everyday life into a farce in the vain of a Blake Edwards type ending with the main catalyst being an item just as boring as the desk job itself, a doughnut. Life in the office devolves from there into madness by the end. I am hoping to shoot this film sometime in 2017.
