Director's statement

Director's statement

The jumping-off point for Auld Lang Syne was a question: what can we make with $5, a hand-held camera, and some duct tape? It was an experiment - we wanted to see just how thrifty we could be while still telling a compelling story, and how quickly we could shoot it without short-changing aesthetics. 7 days of rehearsal, 7 days of shooting, a tight ensemble and a single location. Joyful lunacy. We had a cabin, a tight ensemble, and a kickass theater-trained director. The characters that showed up to the dinner party in my head were actors, musicians, journalists - folks who had big dreams that were rubbing up against the waking world. What came about was a love letter to creatives, and to the creative impulse, with all of its attendant slogging, disappointment, yearning, and dumb luck. It’s a silly film. It's about old friends. It's a little bit about pie. Because when words fail us, and there’s naught but despair, a little sweetness can go a long way.

This is part of our Funded on Seed&Spark playlist.


A true modern day tale of love gained and love lost, Auld Lang Syne is a must-see portrayal of all the chaotic pros and cons that go along with following your dreams...friends, lovers & pies included.

Indie Street

Auld Lang Syne is an earnest little indie film, smartly written and well-acted.
