Filmmaker's note

I, like many others, had lots of difficulty trying to create work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and instead spent that time watching television shows where people were creative all the time. I wanted to make a film that explored the emotional state of creating art for your career when the pandemic caused nothing but feelings of confinement, hopelessness, and depression.
