CAPTAIN CYBORG is the story of a young boy with a hyperactive imagination who creates a superhero alter-ego in order confront bullying at school. Unfortunately for Jake, the lines between reality and fantasy start to blur, and he is forced to make a decision that will change his life forever.
This was my big second semester project at Columbia University’s MFA Film program. It began as a script swap process where everyone signs on to direct someone else’s story as an exercise in collaboration and adaptation. Everyone produces a film as well, but not the one you direct. It was my first time going through a project like this, and I feel I learned a TON from it. I cannot thank the amazing cast and crew of this one enough–so many talented artists leant their time to this very fun project. A special THANK YOU goes out to Kathleen Elle and the East Brunswick Board of Education.
