PREGNAPOCALYPSE

Most of the short films so far have been psychological or suspenseful thrillers/drama, I wanted to tackle a fantastical comedy. Lan and I talked about doing the whole thing as one long take with minimal cuts. The best thing to happen for the short was that I forgot my dress on the day of shooting. Since all I had were jeans, we had to do what we could to have Kaja take them off of me. It's the funniest part of the whole thing.

Blending science fiction and comedy is one of my favorite cross genres. I hope to do more like PREGNAPOCALYPSE in the future.
