Director's Statement

Have you ever anticipated something you were nervous about go through? A first date? Delivering bad news? Taking a test? Giving a presentation? And you run through all of the absurd worst-case scenarios in your head the night before? I know I have, and Just Dinner with Friends is one such nightmare scenario brought to life. Produced on a budget under $2000, I wrote and directed this project as my senior thesis in film school. The entire cast and crew consisted entirely of fellow students who worked diligently to help bring my nightmare scenario to life!
