Director’s Statement

This story was conceptualised around the idea that you don’t really ever know who’s watching. We have a love for old cinema and the way narration was written and used like poetry to tell a story. Everyone involved on this project brought an element that tied in with what everyone else was doing and just like you’d hope, it allowed everything to be in sync and come together in such a tremendous way. From the little choices in performance, the controlled and purposeful movements of the camera, to filling an empty house entirely with furniture and having it work so well, everything came together to make magic. We’re incredibly proud of this film, we’re so glad it’s now out in the world and we hope you enjoy it!
