“This film represents the need for friendship, and love, in order to fully realize yourself and your dreams.” - Director, Kevin Stevenson
Director, Kevin Stevenson, has been working on the script since completing his 2nd film The Hurt in 2017. He teamed up with Producer A.J. El-Gammal and Writer, John Gee, to polish the script. Brainstorming various outcomes, locations, and moods they eventually settled with a grungy setting and a bleak outlook when it comes to the character’s futures. The location will play a large part in the story, it’s a character in itself that the actors will be able to play “off of.”
“There’s a lot to be excited about. We found an amazing decrepit loft that will fully submerge the audience when they take this journey. And we can’t wait to pitch our teaser at the American Film Market.” - AJ El-Gammal
