We shot Friday morning and I spent my weekend slumped over a laptop (I have very poor posture) and I'm pretty dang happy with the result.
The film is a commentary on the state of being “woke” (ie. socially conscious) in today’s society, and how certain people, or brands, can easily claim woke-ness in the public’s eye, but their motivations are actually kinda slimy and self-serving.
To an extent, I see this in myself, and I hate it. There’s tons of organizations whose beliefs I am fully behind and I’ve never given them anything more than a Like on Facebook.
I hope this film can inspire people, myself included, to actually do something to help a cause / organization that they believe in. And no, holding a door doesn’t count.

Written, directed & edited by myself, shot by Byron Kutchera (demo reel), featuring Dave Martineau & Naomi-Joy Blackhall.
Thanks for watching, yo. 🏄
