Director Statement

Floating boy is a very personal film for me. It stars my son and celebrates his creative spirit. The Superman suit is his own and if often wore out around town. The film touches on issues true to every parent who has to let their children go into the world and every child who has to leave the safety of their home to find their way in the world.
