About the film

Jaclyn O’Laughlin signed up to do the 2016 Doc Around the Clock competition run by Docs in Progress. In this competition, a team makes a documentary in a weekend. She asked Joe Dzikiewicz to join her, and the two formed the Documaniacs for making documentaries. Under that name, they made this documentary over the course of April 15-17, 2016.

The documentary won the Jury Award and the Audience Choice Award at the screening, which was held on May 2, 2016. Since then, it was also a selection in the 2016 Community Stories Film Festival and the 2017 Bethesda Film Festival.
