Director Biography - Travis Boone

Based in Chicago, Travis currently enjoys working on low-budget projects with friends and the community around them, focusing on experimental documentaries and shorts with little equipment or crew.
Travis hopes to express to people exploring cinema that “it’s okay if all you have is a camcorder or an iPad, just shoot”, hoping to normalize the medium in all its forms (big or low/no budget) and to push for accessibility in film.

Director Statement

This movie, while being a documentary, was still made with kind of an experimental process - the "scenes" are really small moments with these kids, and the emotional landscapes shape the overall narrative.
