About this submission

I chose to write and direct this film because I'm interested in combining deep, reflective character work with more traditional, "louder" genres and conventions. In this case, I wanted to dress a dramatic character study up as a thriller, giving it an added "hookiness" and narrative engine. In essence, I gravitated towards this story because I wanted to tell a quiet story and still have people watch and engage with it.
