Imagine was inspired by the inovative scientist, Dr. Masaru Emoto. HIs finding indicate a relatoinship between the physical structure of water and the projection of thoughts or energies going into it. We exaggerated this concept, using it as the film’s McGuffin.
The heart of the story is about memories, illustrating how they can sometimes become corrupted when a powerful emotion such as guilt is associated with them.
Imagine follow John Morris (Scott Wolf) on his healing journey while under the influence of a new product experiment, charged water: water that has been influenced by a specific thought or energy. Nearly a year after he loses his only child, John begins to relive some of his memories of that time. The charged water isolates the truth of his memories from the elements of guilt he had associated with them, ultimately leading him to a place of hope where he finds a second chance at a healthy life again.
We made Imagine because we felt the concept was innovative and guilt is a universal emotion to which people can relate. We were thankful that the story could correlate with the concept of the charged water experiments, as we feel there is a strong validity to Dr. Emoto’s findings that we could leave with the audience.
