Director Biography - Sterling Boyns, Andrew Beasley

Sterling Boyns

I received my BFA in Professional Acting at The University of Arizona in May 2016. Shortly after, I had the privilege of performing at The Rogue Theatre, where he acted in Macbeth, Angels in America, Part 1: Millennium Approaches and Celia, A Slave.

After an amazing season at The Rogue, I moved to New York City to continue my pursuit in storytelling, which included acting in short films and directing, producing and starring in my own original titled, This Must Be The Place. In 2020, I moved to Los Angeles to further cultivate my acting on film, voiceover and creative writing.

When I’m not pursuing my artistic endeavors, I enjoy calisthenics, hiking, reading, geeking out over sci-fi movies/tv shows and eating copious amounts of food.

Director Statement

This is a coming of age story that deals with life, death and rebirth, all occurring amongst the backdrop of New York City. Our mission was to capture the ups and downs of adolescence into adulthood, and everything in between. The good, the bad and the ugly are not something that should be hidden. We wanted to approach our project with honesty and authenticity, as best as we could. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by it.
