'I started out this project envisioning the film centering around a narration but later cut this due to wanting to show rather than tell. I was inspired by a number of films and directors, most prominently 'Stanley Kubrick' even lifting a few shots from 'The Shining' and '2001''. - Aaron Rooke & Sam Goddard
