Director Statement

How does someone do justice for a beloved genre of film? How does someone do justice for several more placed on top of it? I set out not to blatantly copy a musical, a noir, a short film, a staged play, but to acknowledge each one in a blended performance. In your viewing of SOCK TOWN, you will see the spirit of each of these genres in a new light.
