$TACK$ is writer/director Gerald Webb’s sarcastic plea for every viewer to be responsible for the attitudes, assumptions and judgments buried deep inside themselves. Its timely message taunts, teases and dares the audience to discover the program’s hidden twists and clues before they walk right into them. It was inspired when Webb went to Burbank Costco in early March 2020 and witnessed people hoarding flatbed carts full of toilet paper. The selfishness he saw on display, just as our country faced the impending pandemic and the racial reckoning brought on by the Black Lives Matter movement was appalling. He wanted to scream but instead channeled his churning emotions into writing $TACK$. Written, cast and crewed up in just sixty hours, Webb stepped into the director’s chair for the very first time. Filming started with a myriad of Covid-19 precautions in place, many of which, hadn’t even been defined by guilds or government agencies. Principle photography wrapped just 48 hours prior to Los Angeles’ initial Covid-19 lockdown going into effect.
