This film was created as part of a Directing class at the University of Mississippi. I really wanted to try and create a shorter project that would be more programmable at Film Festivals. I chose to go with this sort of bro-style of comedy because I felt close to this sort of connection with my own friends. The visual style for this project was the most thought out of any of my films. I was very determined to go with the color scheme you can see above and try to craft a visual style that could stand out. The thing I've heard most about this film is that it really seems fully crafted as a story and production. I couldn't have asked for a better reception as this is one of the last projects I have before leaving film school.
