Director Statement

Spliced Life is a story of internal struggles with validation, grief, and rectifying the past. Travis is a young man with plenty of trauma in his life already, which is the sad reality many young adults are facing in the world today. Mental health is just as important to be taken care of as your physical health. This short film is the first dialogue-heavy shoot of my career, and I wanted it to be about a world-relevant subject. The world needs to learn from the past, not hide it away. I'd like to give my utmost gratitude and congratulations to my actor and good friend Sebastian for his performance in the film. Find him @theactualsebastian on TikTok! Enjoy the Film!
