Director statement

“I moved to New York in 2013 to study at a prestigious film school. A great experience which was for me a necessary process to learn and explore my craft. Eventually however, I found myself underwhelmed by a culture of instant gratification. A ‘you can now make a movie on your iPhone’ mentality which now exists in all aspects of our culture. It did not inspire in me many cinematic ideas and I felt I needed to rebel against it. So instead of paying the tuition I made this film.”
