jitters

Jitters is a universal look at life’s big moments. The story commands the viewer to question perceptions, stereotypes, and making commitments. Those flutters in your stomach, and raised hairs on the back of your neck, we like to call them, "JITTERS". That feeling was something I wanted to explore and also highlight when friends are involved. Best friends know everything about each other, the good and the bad. And if one can't pinpoint those jitters in themselves, a best-friend can. FIDELITY
