FUNNY RUNS (2019)
“Have you ever seen someone jog past and thought, “God, they look ridiculous. I mean really... do they realize how crazy they look when they run like that?”
That’s what this story is about.”
But there’s more to it, of course. Don’t we all look like that to anyone who peeks through the blinders? They say when you open the window to someone’s soul, you begin to see their true beauty. So let’s go deeper — we also start to see just how inane they can really be. Jim Carrey once said “Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.” This film seeks to explore that hilarious truth between a Granddaughter and Grandfather who are mere inches away, and yet generations apart. A great chasm between them gapes, as their flaws may be the greatest thing to bring them together.
