What If My Wife Died In Yoga Class?

Everybody has those weird questions that flicker through our minds from time to time, this outrageously dark comedy sets out to find an answer.

During a mundane laundry day, Randy lets his train of thought run out of control. Once he wonders that fateful 'what if...' he becomes determined to find an answer. His stream of consciousness becomes an epic journey of self-discovery, a train of thought veering from ridiculous lows to absurd highs.

"What If My Wife Died In Yoga Class?" explores the silly-but-profound inner monologue that we all have running through our minds all the time, and takes the time to take those flights of fancy with deadly downward-dog seriousness.

Director Biography - Jeffrey Williams

A seventeen year veteran of the film and television industry, Jeffrey's first job was dubbing tapes for Miramax in 1994. Very quickly, he realized he had a complete lack of talent for working as an assistant editor, so he jumped headlong into editing and hasn't looked back since.

He has had a long career in editing, spanning New York City and Los Angeles, and an equally long career as a short filmmaker. He has directed experimental works that celebrate jagged noise, and polished narratives that celebrate jagged relationships.

As a director, Jeffrey's award winning short films have played at over forty film festivals around the globe during the past five years. In 2012, his short film, "A Day In The Life Of Your Cats," won the "Audience Award for Short Film In Competition" at the 15th Annual Dances With Films festival in Hollywood, among others. The follow-up, "Man Up, Little Boy" won the audience award at the Valley Film Festival the following year.

Jeffrey is currently working as a television editor in Los Angeles, and is developing his first feature film.

Director Statement

For the record, my real-life wife is thrilled by this project. From the first, earliest draft of the script to the finished film, she has been tremendously supportive. I am extremely grateful for her patience, because it wouldn't have been possible to make this without her.

She would like to clarify one thing. For the record, she doesn't do yoga, she kickboxes. I do the yoga in this relationship, and my wife has warned me to downward-dog more carefully in the future.
