Director Statement

We often talk about the experience of working on "Hope For Steve". We agree that it has been the most challenging and most rewarding thing we have ever done. I have never put myself into anything the way I have with this film. At the risk of sounding cliche, Hope and Steve have taught us things that have literally changed our lives. We hope that this film affects the masses the way it has affected us and those involved. I, personally, consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to do this documentary.
