Director's Statement

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!

Director's Bio

Phillip Russell is an award-winning Producer/DP/Editor with experience ranging from short web content and commercials to reality TV and indie feature films. Phil pays his bills working as a Post Production Manager for NorthSouth Productions on HGTV’s 100 Day Dream Home & Lil Jon Wants to do What? as well as truTV’s Impractical Jokers: Inside Jokes, plus other shows. His work co-running Thursday Shoots LLC has earned numerous awards at film festivals. Phil prefers a single slice of pickle on sandwiches – any more than that and it’s too overpowering. A single slice provides a fleeting yet pleasant pop of flavor when you get to it.
