The Production

This was the first experience directing another writer's material. Mindy and Eric, the co-writers and co-stars, approached me in January 2016. After an initial meeting, I signed on to the project and brought in Hannah Welever as the DP, and Mindy was able to get Anthony Hill to play the barista.

We filmed in April 2016 at Ellipsis Coffeehouse in the Rogers Park, Chicago. Post-production was completed in December 2016. As of December 2017, the film is not available to the public until the film festival run is finished in 2018.

Original score by Tony Scott-Green, a Chicago-based composer.
