Director Statement

SHE CAME FROM THE WOODS is inspired by our early influences — particularly Nickelodeon’s ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?. This show awakened our imaginations, fostering a feeling of boundless possibilities and heightened sensory experiences. Our passion for these things has been ever-presents since childhood. It is a feeling that we hope to evoke in audiences — reminding them that sometimes there is nothing more fun than a good old-fashioned campfire story.
