Director Statement

I originally wrote Something, Somewhere in 2016 with the idea in mind to create a world full of dangerous mysteries with such power that the characters would struggle to survive with it. What I discovered while directing the film years later was that the story was much deeper than that—it was more about a friendship than anything else, and in fact I’d based Bret and Marvin’s relationship upon the friendship I have with my own best friend. A good friendship is a difficult thing; one could compare the behavior of long-time friends to that of a married couple--you have good times, and you get in squabbles over your differences, but at the end of the day you must make a tough decision: you either have to work past the squabbles because you know you care about each other, or give up and lose the best person you’ve ever known. This story puts the characters in this position and reveals that even with ridiculous stakes all around them, the power of friendship transcends everything; especially in the darkest of times, all that really matters is taking care of who you care about.
