Dive into the process

Beyond excited to be sharing this work and the film-making process to achieve it with you. This shoot was intense and finding the right pieces in the edit as well as the very demanding VFX were even more challenging. I want to break down the full experience of what was involved in planning, filming, shooting, lighting, a sequence to follow motifs and themes to support the plot.

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.

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.
