PRODUCTIONS NOTES: This film was funded in part by a generous grant from the SCI FI Channel after my previous short film SKINS won the SCI FI Film Festival in New York. It has gotten me many meetings and even a little work. It was incredibly difficult to shoot as it has many locations and a huge cast. It remains my favorite film and has a special place in my heart.
