Unfortunately today’s social media generation primarily have one track minds. Who's Hot and who’s Hotter. That was part of my motivation for the film. I wanted the script to be over the top funny and the scenes to be bright and colorful. My background in photography and advertising was very helpful in every aspect of the films packaging. Growing up with all brothers also influenced my vision. I chose a football theme to demonstrate brotherhood and camaraderie with lots of playful humor. Rebound Sex is a universal relationship story with a serious underlying message and lots of comedic drama. Overall, I wanted the audience to laugh, and have something pretty to look at with a message in the end.
