Production Notes: Filmed in June, 2019, I Ain’t Your Caffeine Monster started its life as a script that I’d been working on for sometime. The scripted version is a much longer and more developed affair than what you see above, but I thought that doing a short test film for the concept would be a good step before I decided if I wanted to go any further. I like the results, but I’m not fully happy with the truncated script–the ending is not very satisfactory and the story loses something as a result. Still, I’m glad we made it, even if I’m not sure if I’ll ever do the longer version.
