“In a fractured and short-attention media environment, this film went long. A 12-minute film that tells a rich story provides a unique opportunity to not just grab attention, but to connect deeply with the audience. Key to achieving this was finding a story that warranted 12 minutes of the audience’s times, and that’s exactly what Director Jess Colquhoun did. Shot on 16MM film and hovering between narrative and documentary, the project is rich in story, visually stunning, and strategically unique.”
