34 is a collaboration between Jae Staats and Jason Francois. Originally created for the IFP Phoenix Masterpiece Film Challenge, 34 was intended as a 5-7 minute short film. After the first few days of filming, however, Jae and Jason realized their script required additional time so they decided to shoot with no limits and make the best film possible. With the help of their outstanding cast, incredible locations and community support . . . 34 became a reality and wrapped on January 9, 2012.
