Director Statement

"Broken Branches" was made by 15 passionate people, with the help of others along the way. The long days and nights over six months of production, while we were all balancing our school and personal schedules, were enough to make anyone quit. However, I worked with the strongest, most dedicated people, and because of that, the show holds its own. Not even the production quality can take away from the story's power, and the heart of the people behind it.
