Director Statement

In 2019 I was inspired to write a short film about something I have been passionate about my entire life- music. Having parents who were both music educators, I grew up listening to stories about the music industry; tragedies of how innocent artists had their fortunes stolen by ruthless businessmen.
That’s why in 2014, when Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were being accused of stealing the Marvin Gaye song “Got To Give It Up” in their hit song “Blurred Lines”, I watched with a keen interest. As the trial continued over the years, with it’s many twists and turns, I set out to tell this story as a narrative piece; Blurred Lines, the title of the song and the film, both ironicaly describe the blurred lines between inspiration and copying.
This is a film about artists. It’s themes discuss what it is to be musically gifted. Blurred Lines, being one of the biggest and most infamous hits of all time, had the Midas touch of someone musically gifted… but who? Was it Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, or was it Marvin Gaye?
