I think greed is interesting. It’s an insatiable thirst of needs that really never gets fulfilled. It’s not always about money or fame either. Greed can be material possessions, that next pair of shoes or jewelry. Greed can come in the form of awards and acknowledgments. When needs become greed, there’s literally nothing a person wouldn’t do to acquire the object of his or her fancy, even if it means corrupting the people they love. I wanted the lead in the short to be a successful, business savvy woman. From the outside, it appears she has everything. Then you learn some secrets about her. She doesn’t have the luxury to sort through her shame, guilt, and foul deeds gradually like a lot of us, she has one, terrifying moment to process everything. What would you do if your past was forced upon you in front of the very people you sinned against?
