Director Statement

This film is a nostalgic letter home from camp and pays homage to my childhood and the awkward yet normal things that happen to us while growing up. I wanted to portray the film as a memory and conglomeration of stories, thus the hazy glow of the image. My goal is to evoke the feelings and memories of one’s own life and experiences. The film is set around 2012, which can be seen in the details of the set decoration. This year stands out in my childhood as the quintessential transition period between elementary school and middle school and therefore the perfect moment for a film about growing up. Many of the props and set pieces are actually from my childhood and were brought up from my home to add to the realism of the story and characters.
