Director's Comments

An entry into the Bricks in Motion "Fright and Fear" contest.
Rodge and his assistant look to revitalize his funeral home that's struggling for business.

Originally I had a completely different film planned that was more along the lines of what the contest wanted. Unfortunately, time ran short and there was simply no way to finish to the level I wanted by the deadline. Reviewing most of the shots, I completely missed the mark.
Instead, I decided to make this. Based on a concept I've had for a while and had originally sought to use with this years BRAWL. Preservation fits no where better than a funeral home, right? I wasn't able to part take in BRAWL this year and so the idea was never done, and I figured it could kinda squeeze into the summer contest.
