We decided to shoot this short while we were scouting the location for another project. The concept’s inspiration came from a failed and abandoned visual effect attempt for another project that made everyone laugh – we repurposed the effect into this strange experimental comedy! We brainstormed and jotted down the plot during the long drive to the location and started filming once we arrived. We made the film just for fun, but love how it turned out and have decided to unleash its strangeness upon the world!
