DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

"It's a curious thing bringing a story from the page to the screen. While the script is certainly the foundation upon which you build - every technical and artistic element is as important as the next. From creating the shot list, to the tiniest details of production design, to guiding your lead actor to that place where a memorable character is born. No stone should be left unturned. In the end what you see when you watch EARWORM is an audio and visual tour through the odd contents of my noggin. Yeah, it's a little weird in there. How lucky I am to have such imaginative people read my original script and want to come on board this project. From my brilliant producer, to my insanely gifted actor, to the obscure New Hampshire band who created a masterpiece of a song destined to stick with you forever. All people I have worked with before, because one should always keep the most hardworking, talented folks close to your heart... and on your speed dial. So happy to call these guys my friends. I fancy myself a celluloid storyteller, endlessly fascinated by the human psyche... and things that go bump in the night. My goal is to present a tale that will stick with the viewer long after the credits have rolled, giving them something to chew on. Art is meant to evoke emotions. As a viewer myself I want to be awestruck. If just one person has lingering feelings after watching EARWORM then I have accomplished everything I set out to do." - Tara Price, Writer/Director
