Directors’ Notes
We live on a great, vast planet, but time has passed enough for us to see it shrinking at a devastating pace. We devised a series of “quarantines” and “lockdowns”. The world’s borders have closed from the restrictions and limitations created by our circumstance. We jolted awake into a shrunken world. We are imprisoned not only in body, but also in mind and spirit.

We have begun to doubt even our basest sense of self. We now find ourselves alone, crashed into this small world of confusion and loss, where we are held captive. Even still, the self perseveres to somehow find, convince, and revive itself.

In the short film “The Little Planet”, we journey within forty days — forty that symbolize these times of trial, and a test of one’s self. When this is done, we will once more emerge into a wider world– whole, new, and free.
