Dane Clark and Linsey Stewart say, “One chilly November night, while writing our first short together we got intoxicated and made out on Queen East in downtown Toronto to see if we had any sexual chemistry.

Here’s a transcript from that night:

Dane: You want to come back to my place?
Linsey: No.
Dane: Why?
Linsey: Cause you live in Mississauga.
Dane: Oh. Right. Not sexy. See you Monday… I guess?

Long Branch is the ‘what if?’ version of our story, told through far more interesting characters than ourselves. We wanted to explore a broken-hearted girl that thinks quick dirty sex will make her feel better but what this sweet guy shows her while they travel from subway to streetcar to bus to biking through a blizzard, is that love exists and not every relationship is shitty. This night gives Lynn hope. It fixes her heart. And that’s what we’re all about.”
