I should explain this one. Originally, it was going to be a movie about the making of the movie being made by the puppet…but it seemed more amusing to remove the “making of” layer and just show the final movie that resulted from Skiddles’ “vision” colliding with his infinitesimal budget and apologetic overthinking. A bit autobiographical, I suppose – but it became the opposite of a vanity project – the most train-wreck project possible, for both Skiddles and whatever filmmaking career I imagined I was moving toward. Now I wonder what the hell made me do it. I’ve even been tempted to bury it. But it’s Skiddles’ movie, and I feel like he would prefer it continuing to exist in the world – because he tried very very very hard to make it good.
