Filmmakers: Corey Snyder Beasley & Livia Beasley Art Direction: Stephane Verzi This film would not be possible without the solid napping skills of Darien Beasley and the generosity of Victoria and Val Beasley.

Thanks go to Mom and Dad Beasley for their nap time management and the generous use of their actually very clean attic.

We shot this just before the quarantine, but it seems to fit the moment. This began mostly as a lighting and mood test, and we came up with a loose story the day before we shot. We hit some roadblocks, and didn’t think we could finish under the current circumstances. But the footage told a certain story when we got into edit. When the forces around you grip tightly, and our relationships and our creativity feel bound up, we can choose to let in fear or light. We choose light. Filmmakers: Corey Snyder and Stephane Verzi Editors: Corey Snyder and Livia Beasley Talent: Alex McKelvey and Emilie Kuznicki Shot on Panasonic GH5s.
