Matthew, a religious teenager, is invited to a house party by one of his classmates but is mysteriously warned of what may ensue if he decides to go.
Written while attending SXSW in 2019, this short film was inspired by Zach's personal beliefs and experiences regarding religion in his life. He produced the film himself entirely on a micro-budget, only using his classmates and camera gear from his high school Audio/Visual class. While the short was never screened publically, Zach gained notoriety amongst his class, as hundreds of students watched it after its online release. To this day, the script remains to be one of Zach's favorite works, so much so that he outlined sequel and prequel scripts expanding on the supporting characters in 10:16.
