Director Statement

I feel most indie films (including my previous ones) tend to always be about twentysomethings living in NYC, finding out who they are, usually reflective of the filmmaker, and aimed at an arthouse/intellectual crowd. Very few indie films cater to children and teens, despite youth being a major market. My goal was to break away from what have become the modern cliches of artsy indie films and instead make something that was a throwback to Nickelodeon in the 1990's. Furthermore, I feel there isn't really a John Hughes for the current generation, and it's a role I aspire to fill if I could keep making films for this demographic.
