About the Production:
“As someone who is relatively neurotic, I
think most of us have our own insecurities and issues to deal with.
That’s one of the reasons I’m really excited about this project. Nobody
is perfect and stressful situations only amplify the crazy. Also, the
world can feel like a frightening, messed up place if you’ve been
watching the news, but we can’t spend our entire existence being dark.
Humor and normalcy creep back in, and sometimes it’s the only way to
confront otherwise terrifying uncertainty. This film attempts to meet
those fears head on, all while remaining optimistic, witty, and fun.” — Heather Jack
