Filmmakers’ statement

Above all else we aim for truth. Our favorite works of art deal honestly with basic human conflicts and that’s our goal as well. We want our stories to be simple, our performances grounded and our films universal.

In order to produce more cohesive work we handle every aspect of the filmmaking process ourselves from pre- through to post-production. We have a close knit group of collaborators whose hard work and ingenuity make these films possible. We thank them. And we thank you for giving us a shot.
