The biggest fear after high school is “what’s next?” but for this young adult “what’s next?” has a darker meaning.
Writer: Nolan Desrochers
Director: Daniel Bear
Producers: Nolan Desrochers, Rae Swan
To me this film means more than what’s on the surface. When Nolan Desrochers approached me with the script, I read something so personal yet so universally felt. I couldn’t not take up the task.
In order to tell the story of a young man who not only fears losing his friends but also himself, I needed a stellar cast and crew. Without Nolan and without the absolutely fantastic crew, the film would not be what it is.
When you have a film about the dark childhood fears every human has/had, it’s good to know you have a team that can relate to it and work hard to show the world just a hint of what today’s youth fear.
