Launched in 2020, The Cuttin' Room Floor is a web series that uses parody and discussion to explore the cultural impact of cult classics. By audaciously imagining content that didn't make the final cut of our favorite films, televisions shows, plays, and albums - and by creating a platform for reflection and dialogue with creatives and fans - The Cuttin' Room Floor celebrates storytelling and promotes an awareness of just how much pop culture (for better or for worse) shapes our understanding of who we are and what life is.

“Culture is the codification of Life's best practices,
developed and shared - organically and intergenerationally -
by a group of people.
The cultural expression of storytelling
through film, theatre, television, music, etc.,
reveals our preferred worldview;
reflects our values and beliefs;
lays bare what we think, trust, expect, accept;
and ultimately demonstrates -
and influences -
what we do.
Story is not entertainment.
Story is the organizing principle of our identity.
It is the central determinant of our experience and circumstance.
It is the software to our body's hardware.
Story is the technology that unlocks our capacity
for conscious co-creation and evolution.
Story as Culture is the way human beings create meaning out of Life."
