Three friends try to write a play before midnight on New Years Eve.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s telling a good story. This particular story takes place over one night. But what makes this project so exciting is that we FILMED the entire project over the course of one night as well.

We shot this film in the anamorphic format, allowing us to fit more into the frame without compromising the up close performances of the actors.
