Director Statement

The Northview Wildcat Marching Band is near and dear to my heart, and as I spent hundreds of hours in the blistering hot and freezing cold, I realized that not many people know what truly goes into making a show, and what happens during the season. There's something truly magical about spending all this time together, and this film is an expression of that feeling.
