Director Statement

Spooky Action is a story about time.
Some things seem impervious to time, immutable, while others appear to either elongate or shorten it. In other words, time is a finite measure, but its relativity is philosophical.
That’s the inspiration for this project. Both love and faith are enduring qualities that share elements of reality and imagination. Each requires belief and devotion.
Our lives follow this unpredictable rhythm. As a parent, your child-raising time flies by.
The loss of a loved one causes you to pause and reflect. Time, then, is relative to emotion.
Our history also follows this rhythm. We are all time travelers of a sort. Think of what has transpired in your lifetime and what you have learned.
Regret is human. If you could view your life from a fresh perspective, what would you correct?

Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger (famously known for his cat) described quantum entanglement as: “Two interacting objects, observer and observed, woven into one.” Science cannot determine what lies underneath our observations. Entanglement may be responsible for keeping objective reality behind a veil in human experience.

The trouble with time is its relentless persistence.
The trouble with life is its resistance to time’s cold reality.
As Amelia says: “Destiny has a way of finding people.”
Quantum Entanglement asks: is this experience real or imagined?
