The story has a surreal theme and is probably the result of the pressure and pain of me losing friends in the aftermath of the air crush a few months earlier in a flight. The entire film was shot within four days. I edited a longer version but for the purpose of our class I made a final five minutes cut which excludes some of my most favorite scenes. We were busted through the process of making this film a few times including twice in the Burbank cemetery, but I think the gorilla style shooting is my favorite and I don’t really see myself paying for location in the future. If you are interested to see this film please go to the videos in my website and there should be a link to my Vimeo page for this version.
The first prize winner was a poetic, warm and personal film made by another talented classmate Christa Berndt called “Field of View” which I really wish I could watch again sometimes. The film was made with fluid camera movements and dreamy like montage that reminded me of Terrance Malick’s works. Beside the two of us all the other shorts were pretty much engaging and like I always say; art is subjective and winning or becoming first or second doesn’t mean the same as it does in sports. Yeah so that’s about it.
