I’ve been directing my sister since we were kids, but this is the first time we’ve made it official. We grew up reading and performing scenes from a book many young theatre kids had-- Scenes for Young Actors. I wanted this tiny film to have that feel: a curated, concise set up with just the fun, juicy bits to bite into. This short is about the chemistry between two friends, and how the most minor changes in someone’s actions can shift an entire evening. Scenes for Young Actors first introduced me to so many great plays, in the same way I hope this short makes you want to see the rest of the series we aim to film some day.
Please enjoy this lil rom-com we created with our LA family (my sister, my cousin, my partner, and his brother). I’m proud of it, and I love them all.
