In the midst of a global pandemic, four friends find themselves at the center of an existential crisis.

Director’s Statement

THE AXE AND THE IRON is a fun, 10-minute short that just so happens to fit in pretty nicely with the current situation in the world, though we shot it months ago! When I read this script, I immediately fell in love with these characters and needed to watch them come to life. I had also been looking for a project where I could experiment with dark, moody lighting and dilapidated set pieces, and I loved the challenge of having that brooding backdrop set against the comedic elements. It brought me so much joy to be able to tell this exciting chapter of their story.
