Jacob just spent the night at Ellen's for the first time. The still-new couple wanders into Brooklyn the next morning, to hang out. Jacob acts strange. Ellen wonders why. A confession is coming. And it's not what you expect.

The Story

On an artistic level, we're making this film as a means of exploring a very relateable and human thing that happens early in budding romances. We can't tell you much more without spoiling The Confession. It's a very short film about a conversation that almost all of us have had at one point or another in life, but that we rarely discuss publicly.

We're also looking to experiment, on a small scale, with a speedier and more on-demand way of delivering directly to our audience. The idea is to give them some good entertainment in exchange for the means of crafting a story (and paying our collaborators a nominal wage for getting the work done well and quickly)!

All together, we have to confess that we really like you -- and want to work for you again.
