About the Director and Producer:
Maurice Hicks’ love of film began at a young age when his mother would frequently watch the kung fu films of the Shaw Brothers. Not only did that ignite his passion for movies, but also a curiosity in different cultures, the art of storytelling, and universal entertainment with no language barriers.
As he grew, his interest in filmmaking increased and he eventually went on to combine his passions of film and culture by obtaining a bachelor’s degree while double majoring in film production and psychology.
Since graduating, Maurice has written, produced, and directed his own feature length film, directed a web commercial for Blu e-Cigs, acted as 1st assistant director in commercials for companies such as Food Lion and CSX, produced commercial content for restaurants, and various other projects.
Maurice’s artistic influences included Steven Soderbergh, Terrence Malick, Nicolas Winding Refn, Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, and Asghar Farhadi.
