Director's Statement

We wanted to make something that would make people laugh. Like the iconic director Preston Sturges once said, “There’s a lot to be said for making people laugh. Did you know that that’s all some people have?” It’s a dark time in a lot of ways in the world today. So we think it’s a perfect time to sit back and laugh at ourselves and the world.
