Kasch and Skipp will be collaborating to co-direct one of the vignettes.
The film is being produced by Mike Mendez and actress/director Axelle Carolyn. Axelle Carolyn is responsible for the concept and for bringing the group of filmmakers together. Carolyn said the following in regard to the group of directors involved: “This anthology movie is unique in that that the directors aren’t a randomly assembled bunch who’ve never met; they’re close friends who are working closely together as a team to deliver something truly special.”
