After producing a short teaser trailer in 2015 for Gordon Pinsent, I was privileged to read several of his stacks of scripts, short stories and poems.  One of his many unique, richly drawn characters caught my attention: HAGGE, his physical manifestation of anxiety and depression in a story called Martin’s Hagge.

She was so vastly different from most female characters; irritating, unrelenting, sour; almost unlikeable, I immediately asked his permission to weed the story down to a short.  Gordon generously agreed.
