Synopsis: A dark “comedy…with consequences,” You Drive Me Crazy is a cautionary tale about our obsessive reliance on technology. A seemingly ordinary guy, Glen, is driving when his GPS voice gives him directions that don’t quite add up. When he tries to follow his own path, the GPS computer shockingly takes control berating him for some of his life choices. Things go from bad to worse when Glen winds up in the last place he’d ever want to be.

The idea of You Drive Me Crazy started out as a real ride to go someplace local but our GPS was taking us all over back streets! I reasoned that I needed to obey her! Then… what would happen if….? That started the ball rolling and You Drive Me Crazy was born. I was also attracted to the technology of trying to make a film with green screen and miniatures, slow motion and visual effects. It’s a comedy…with consequences! W.C.Fields famously said, “Comedy is merely tragedy happening to someone else.”
