Very fond of this short, which I wrote and directed to submit for the JFS film club. The grand majority of the actors here are from Elizabeth Mestnik Acting Studio – and the entire cast and crew were on point! This short is really where I honed in on my style as intuitive, efficient, and cultivating a strong foundation of trust and respect, so everyone on set can pivot through each and every moment together. One actor described it as “David Lynch does sketch comedy.” I love that.
