“There’s the truth an individual believes and then there’s the truth the camera sees.” said director, Roy Tighe. 

“One of my favorite parts of being in the entertainment industry is seeing how stories can impact and inspire people to believe in themselves and do a greater good for themselves or their community. I truly believe this is one of those stories,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
