Production Background & Fun Facts: Rocket Science is a comedy that functions as a light social commentary of the inhumane way we're forced to communicate with rather unintelligent artificial intelligence. Despite the fact it's done as a science fiction piece, it was designed so that everyone who’s ever gotten angry at an automated telephone system to obtain technical support can identify with it.

Festivals & Accolades: Cannes, Milwaukee International Short Film Festival
