Director Statement

This is a story with characters that are above everything else, human. They are thrown into vulnerable narratives and forced to figure out how to navigate them. Stuffed Heads is about how a young man navigates a break up that he's been having a hard time moving on from.

Stuffed Heads is a character-driven film and all of the people in the story were written to be able to exist in the real world. They are all college students in a Midwestern college. I love movies that take reality and decorate its edges with fiction to tell a story. Seeing you reflected in a film makes you care for the characters and I am actively attempting to do that with this story. Inspirations that I carried with while making the film include: Lady Bird (2017), The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), Rushmore (1998), and The 400 Blows (1959).
