  1. I co-directed this! I hope you enjoy!

  2. Swear to god, I favourited this long ago to watch a couple times a month (more, tbh) when sh*t gets too real.
    (Local/federal politics have us going up in flames & will be burning women at the stake, next).

    The animation/direction is PERfectly witty and clever, the writing SO understated and droll, the actors well cast and directed.
    A well-cut gem and fortunate intersection of intelligence, talent, skill and luck.
