Hoover and Yourd's advice to current film students, especially those from their alma mater, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. "Use the resources and equipment at your disposal and get your hands dirty. You'll make mistakes, but learn from them and don't give up. Find a mentor or internship and just really push yourself to continue to learn and grow," they advise.
The Blood Brother crew has already started working on their next feature documentary which is another character-driven story.
