Although the script for American Hikikomori was finished in late 2012, two more years would pass before we could begin principle photography. An additional year would pass in order to complete post-production in early 2015.
It’s been a long but rewarding journey from script to screen. We are proud to present our short film as the labor of love we truly intended it to be.
