Production Background & Fun Facts: The film's main character is based on numerous real-life people and situations. I wanted to challenge myself by splitting styles of cinematography; one in which the film was shot in oners as a play where the audience becomes a main character as a result of a permanently broken fourth wall, and the other where a memory can only be presented in a previously recorded format with traditional film coverage, utilizing two different cinematographers for each respective half.
