(2015) THANK YOU FOR PLAYING

CO-DIRECTOR/PRODUCER/EDITOR
CINEMATOGRAPHER, COMPOSER

When Ryan Green, a video game programmer, learns that his young son Joel has cancer, he and his wife begin documenting their emotional journey in the form of an unusually beautiful and poetic video game. Lauded as "unimaginably intimate" by The New Yorker and "profoundly moving" by Indiewire, THANK YOU FOR PLAYING is a testament to the the ability of art and technology to document profound experiences in the modern age.
