Director’s statement

Tyler Funk says:

FTW started in a creative writing class at UBC. A classmate of mine, David Jol, was working on a screenplay that featured film students creating short films, and one particular scene from that screenplay immediately resonated with me.

I spoke with David about developing what was then two sentences into a five minute film and he was in. Within a month we had a completed film.”
