Roll Bounce was an opportunity to tell a coming of age story and work with Bob Teitel and George Tillman of State Street Pictures. Norm Vance Jr.’s script was a story I could relate to and a script that had my sensibilities. With the help of the great cinematographer, J. Michael Muro, I feel as if I grew as a visual storyteller.
