Director Statement

While on the surface, Slice and Hook is a story about a group of friends leaving college, at its core, it's a story about growing up. While we're growing up, we have worries that, at the time, seem like they're the most important things in the world. But as we get older, we come to find out that many of those worries weren't as big we thought. And there are moments in life that, for better or for worse, make us see that. To me, that's really what growing up is. It's struggling to figure it all out. And while I think there are fleeting moments when we can see the bigger picture, life always has a way of pulling us back in.
