Anna can't wait to escape the office party from hell. After a series of cringy coworker interactions, she's left feeling helpless and ready to go. Before she can make a run for it, an unexpected invite leads to a fantastical escape from the humdrum. Is it real? Does it matter? And where the heck is Larry?
Snack Table was created as a part of Film Score Fest, an intimate Minnesota film event that pairs filmmakers with composers to explore the power of successfully marrying the visual and musical.
Sierra and I wanted to tell the story of an anxious introvert in a way that was both familiar and humorous in its approach. It's easy to miss the light at the end of the social anxiety tunnel sometimes, and with that in mind we created a story that would be a gentle reminder of hope.
Snack Table is my solo directorial debut. It was co-created with my writing and producing partner Sierra Schermerhorn, with an original score composed by Simon Sperl, performed live by professional musicians in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Thank you for watching!
