Director Statement

Cupcake is a project that came about after working as a lighting technician for about ten years on various projects for different people, watching how they made movies, and finally deciding that if they can do it, I can at least try.

During the writing process I was thinking a lot about the absurd lengths some people go through to break up with another person, rather than simply breaking up with them. I also happened to be living with a roommate who couldn’t stop helping himself to food that wasn’t his. And I’m constantly thinking about my love/hate relationship with the American South and all the interesting characters I’ve met growing up here, all of their values - whether they actually abide by them or not.

I believe that we somehow managed to capture all of these ideas in one story, with tremendous help by the best cast I could have possibly assembled.
