This video pretty much represents the limits of what one person can do in her mom's garage with no money. A solitary month building sets; four days filming (in 103 degree heat) with the invaluable assistance of cinematographer Nolan Maloney, 1st AC John Hubbard and grips Dan Politz and Katy Cecchetti. Then another month in post. And now it appears, to be a momentary distraction on the internet before it is instantly buried in an avalanche of newer things.
