Director Statement

"We were happy with the surprise that Vessel had a very Alien, Predator feel to it, that we did not intend for, but were able to achieve. I always like telling a different side to a story, giving a different perspective, showing the audience a point of view they wouldn't normally see. It was fun watching this story evolve into this five minute menacing ride that allows you to feel the devastation without even seeing it."
