Director's Statement

This short film is part of a larger supernatural thriller I started animating 6 years ago. The Sonoran Desert is a part of my upbringing "” watching the moon rise and hearing the coyotes yapping in the distance" have simmered in my subconscious since. It's influenced my music and animation. I welcome you a glimpse into my mind with El Mariachi and The Rattlesnake Witch.
