Director Statement

Carlos Mejia: Serpendipity is a story with wild shifts and twists, bringing absolute chaos to a seemingly normal blind date. At its core, Serpendipity’s narrative explores how our insecurities can manifest into embarrassing behavior that can make any situation worse. Whether our insecurity is as ordinary as not liking our glasses, or as extraordinary as having rowdy snakes for hair, we all have something to work on that others can help us accept.

Kevin Barwick: Serpendipity stemmed from a simple concept of insecurity. A feeling we’ve all felt. It’s universal language, signifying features, are the essence of the film. When I joined the team I had this ingrained. I wanted this to stay true till the end. The audience needed to resonate with Gordon, see themselves inside the anguish of the film’s lead characters.
