So 5 years ago, a friend of mine committed suicide.  My opinions on suicide aside, I was heartbroken.  I can’t relate that action to the beautiful person that I knew.  Her essence was the very fabric of life, and it was soul crushing.  We had talked on occasion about her thoughts.  Her quietness.  How she would find herself writing and re-writing a final note to the world.  As always, I dealt with it the only way I knew how, and made a short film.  This film was made 5 years ago.  If I could make it again, there are a few things I would change (starting with technical things like better motion tracking, better spacial awareness, etc…).  Nevertheless, I want to share my works so that newcomers can be inspired to shoot and create, and see that even those of us that are a bit seasoned started somewhere.  Even with the films technical flaws in regards to vfx, it’s still beautifully shot, and the opening shot is one of my favorite that I’ve ever directed.
