Director Statement

I wrote John Flick for Cinema Workshop's winter screenwriting contest, as a freshman. The idea came from looking back on high school theater. It dawned on me that by the age of 18, a third of my life had been spent doing plays and musicals with Pinelands Thespians. I grew up, I learned lessons, and I made meaningful connections on that stage. It made sense to write from a setting I was familiar with, but I wanted to put a twist on it. I was lucky to have a crew of experienced filmmakers who were really passionate about the story. Making a short film from start to finish has been such a learning experience, and I hold immense gratitude for everyone who helped make it happen.
