Director Statement

Maneater! is a love letter to every cartoon I watched growing up, and an attempt to reconcile those aesthetics with other more "grown up" interests I've accrued through the years. Taking a maximal everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach in terms of genre and form both allowed for many genuine moments of child-like discovery and served the cartoon aesthetic.
