Dive into the process

No more excuses, if you have a story to tell, shoot it. Gear should not dictate wether or not you can share your own unique human perspective. We can now have a computer with a camera that can shoot 4k right in our pocket, with us at all times. Documentaries, Short Films, even Feature Films could now be captured this way if it needs to. If you want to make something, create it and share it.

Concept

This story was about the quiet, yet internally loud, struggles of the mind. The idea of finding the pieces of you and upholding your ideal self while staying authentic and sound is something we all go through to some degree.

 

How can we overcome our regrets and use our past to better shape our future instead of tearing down? A man searches for a cabin in the storm.

To explore this idea the right way, the location needed to be just right to capture that very intimate and fleeting introspective search.

Production

Fun yet stressful. This shoot had many challenges. Come on set with us to see how we made "The Answer"

Post

Post Production was quite simply a nightmare. The scenes became so layered and dense that it slowled down what I could realistically do on a laptop. Fortunately a new workstation was offered thans to a partnership with Dell and Nvidia. With the new hardware the project was finished on time.
