“The bizarre, improbably moving Sylvio has moments of beauty that border on the sublime. There’s a yearning to the hairy guy’s amazingly uneventful puppet shows, a dream of sophistication that transcends his animal brutishness. The movie’s also funny as hell because, again, it’s about a gorilla wearing sunglasses and people clothes.” – Boston Reel, 04/28/2017

“The fifteenth annual Independent Film Festival Boston begins on Wednesday night, kicking off Holy Week for the city’s cinephiles. Unspooling at the Somerville, Brattle and Coolidge Corner Theatres, the non-profit IFFBoston and its all-volunteer staff showcase independent films at independent venues, far from the madding multiplexes.” – Metro, 04/26/2017

“There’s an atmosphere that fosters community. People who would never engage a stranger at the Kendall have no problem turning to a stranger in line and asking what they’ve seen that they liked. We have heard so many stories of people who met at the festival who went on to become best friends, and in a few cases, get married and start families.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 04/25/2017

“Scripts are sort of slippery documents. You write this stuff and it’s real easy to write and it’s really, really hard to do. The next step would be storyboarding, but again storyboarding can be full of bullshit as well. It lulls you into a false sense of security that it’s actually doable. So then we built models and stuff and started to plan it out, and I eventually used Minecraft.” – Boston Reel, 04/22/2017
