DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

I grew up in the midwest and was raised by two parents, one agnostic and one very devote Christian.  I went on to study religion in college and have been fascinated by mankind's search for the meaning of life ever since.  It wasn't until recently that I was introduced to Quantum Mechanics and the most current physics that is so mind boggling it defies logic.  From Einstein's general theory of relativity to the particle physics making headlines today, what I missed in school growing up and along the way in life, is just embarrassing.  I know I'm not alone.  Is it me, or does science and religion actually sound closer than ever?!”  

So I set out to make a Quantum Physics for Dummies movie. The science defies logical. Like: “Time in an illusion.” And, “your observation effects the outcome…” It feels absurd and satirizes our sense of reality. Cinema itself, and especially our hollywood western rules of story seemed at stake. So MDD Spacetime sometimes spoofs hollywood, sometimes the friends that inspired the script itself. I was taught comedy is serious stuff. The philosophical nature of the science reminded me of theatre, like “Waiting for Godot.” Painfully existential. So this film, may be painful to watch for some, funnily enough. It’s not normal hero structure, definitely on the fringe, a mix of mini and anti-plot for those who take story seriously and I fully accept a lot of people won’t get most of it. I know I don’t get the real science either. Rather, I hope some audiences can just give into the absurdity and have a little fun. Laugh at ourselves, our pursuit of the unknowable stuff, because I think we sometimes miss the point. Without love in our hearts towards each other… we’re all kind of lost to repeat the lessons of life again and again.
