In 50 words or less, what’s this film about?
This film is about struggling with different forms of writer's block only in this case they are super villains and Will Power is the hero.
What inspired you to make this film?
The film was made for the NOLA 48 hour film project. We pulled Super Hero as the genre. It was a collaborative effort with writing the script and it was driven largely by the required elements for the competition and what we had as strengths on the team (e.g., utilizing a great make-up artist instead of costumes).
