    What an quirky, wonderfully idiosyncratic film. The parsimonious presence of the project only adds to it’s charm. And I have a feeling that those involved had just a good of a time making it as I had watching it. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Dakota Bailey’s work…

          Yes-your correct. All of my films are filmed in Denver, so do expect to see some familiar Denver landmarks while viewing them.

    Great little short film and straight to the point too, I’m tired of all those experimental films with 1/4 of development and 3/4 filler bullshit, like that film ‘gummo’ what the fuck was that? I’m still pissed I watched that shit. But I digress, I recommend this film, also nice powerviolence soundtrack.
