On Maladaptive

"Maladaptive was a film I made a number of years ago and it was my first narrative fiction feature film.  It's probably the most serious comedy out there.  It is a comedy, but it's a human comedy and the recognition of ourselves in what these characters do is what makes it so serious.


"I wrote the script with a lead character named Graham, long before Graham Cowley was cast.  When Graham agreed to do the part, I figured it was fate and so I didn't change the name of the character."
