A woman believes she is going on a romantic date, what happens instead comes as complete surprise.


"...the climactic twist certainly is arresting, and there is something to be said about the combined effect of the persistent camera and Crofoot’s direct address to it. Not quite hypnotic, but strangely compelling in a manner that emphasizes the tragedy of the final truth."

I had just finished doing a Webinar for the Mississauga Arts Council (MAC) with Jim Morrison IV on the process of Micro Budget Filmmaking and Jim and I thought it would be great to show what type of film could actually be produced with little to no budget. We knew the film had to be short, with one location and very few actors. Jim told me he had a garage or a forest nearby that could serve as the location. I chose the forest and what resulted is a two page, one actor, one location script that was shot entirely on an iPhone. Currently it is in post-production.
