Director Statement

'Shin Pads' was simultaneously born out of a desire to express the childlike innocence of dreaming big, and to ask what makes one feel at home in a world that feels wildly chaotic? Although the narrative is simple, the depth of the story comes from Reece's yearning to make his illusive father proud and, ultimately, to believe in his own capability.
