Sy Huq is an American director, screenwriter, and producer. His love of films by Akira Kurosawa, Ridley Scott, and Hayao Miyazaki growing up, inspired him to pursue a path in English and screenwriting at the University of Texas at Arlington. Afterwards he learned to bring the writing to life at UCLA’s Producer Program. “Things That Fall” was a story he wanted to create to allow viewers to experience the world of auditory hallucinations in a new light. He revels in stories which speak to the inner and often hidden strength in people, and nothing makes him happier than making others smile with them.
