Director Statement

I grew up with a military father and a songwriting mother. My mother was often impulsive and bursting with creative ideas while my dad enjoyed routine and analyzing the programs on the history channel. It wasn't hard for me to understand the concept of an emotional right brain and a logical left brain because I thought of my parents. They're opposites that sometimes collide yet also compliment each other.
Brain Waves tells the story of a guy who has relied on his logical side more than his emotional side. The story encourages us to feel our emotions and let that guide our decision making sometimes. It also celebrates the collaboration of logic and love to achieve our goals. Brain Waves is a love story that recognizes our desire to be with clever minded people like ourselves -and to me that's the best kind of love story.
