Filmmaker’s statement

Ryan LaVia says:

Teabagged was inspired by watching some five second films online which made me want to attempt something extremely short and witty.

I knew right away that I wanted my film to have a title that the audience would instantly relate to and, once the title was conceived, the rest of the story came together quite quickly.

Teabagged was shot digitally on a DSLR camera over six hours and took even longer to edit mainly because every bit of original audio was replaced in post-production and re-created for clarity.”
