“The story is incredibly fun. Crisp and kinetic visual storytelling. A cacophony of narrative elements, obstacles, relationships, themes that [the writers] have effectively streamlined into a taut, character-driven film.”
— UFVA juror, 2016

“I do remember a certain evening when you de-robed because I told you there were leeches all over your butt from swimming in our pond.”

”You were very convincing. You even made leech noises.”

”I wanted to see your junk.”

”You could’ve just asked.”

”Hey, I was seventeen. The leech idea was genius.”
