I wrote this screenplay in reaction to our increasingly delivery-based society where there’s more money to be made from broadcasting your personality online than having one in person. Friendship, romance, fandom, politics, and culture are all being filtered through screens, and while I don’t think that’s a Black Mirror-level bad thing, I’m not convinced that online interaction can hold an LED candle to the real thing of being with other people. I had never made a feature before, but I was just confident and dumb enough to convince myself I could do it. With a small group of devoted friends, we shot on a shoestring budget in my mother’s apartment in Chicago, which doubled as our sleeping/living quarters. I made almost all of the food.
