Synopsis: A writer with a deadline is haunted by sounds coming from her backyard.

Director’s Statement: Inspired by squirrels playing and running around during exercise one morning with my producer James, we thought these sounds were really creepy. The film is also inspired by the ‘cabin fever’ writers like myself suffer when we have to churn out pages but would rather be distracted by everything and anything than do actual writing.

Director’s Bio: Leon graduated from Chapman University with a BFA in Creative Producing. He is also an alumni of the Berlinale Talents (2014), Asian Film Academy (2013) and Tokyo Talent Campus (2012). Leon’s “The Three Sisters” won ‘Best Short Film’ at the 7th NETPAC-Jogja Asian Film Festival. His short films have travelled to festivals in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Tehran, Bangkok, Germany, Tokyo, and more. He just released a new web series, “People Like Us”, and developing his debut feature film, “For Adults Only”.
