Directors notes

On a personal level, this film was just about the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, from fundraising to the actual execution and marketing of the film. It’s also a very special memory I’ll continue to carry with me for the rest of my career. The amount of time we spent writing, conceptualizing, and executing this short was unforgettable because it was a collaboration of three best friends doing what they love to do (and doing it well, I might add).
