WRITER/DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

"People routinely wish they could be a 'fly on the wall'.

I took that comment literally, considering what a fly's POV might be, what its interests and reflexes might be, thus what it might miss from its allegedly enviable perspective. With that in mind, I made a point of frustrating the audience's expectations, not showing and not hearing what they want or expect to see and hear, again and again.

The one crucial piece of information the fly does see (through a screen), which is crucial to a couple of the characters, is missed by them entirely, even though they're nearby. Even then, the fly isn't 'interested' in this information -- it has other, simpler motives.

Ironically, in this short, the fly is never really on any wall."

- John Hays

 


Bzz..Uh Oh.
