ED

Final film project made at Sheridan College. This film depicts a older man living his everyday life after the death of his wife.  The idea for this film is to create something ordinary and common though simple camera movements that can connect people and ignite a feeling in the viewer. I wanted to showcase the quite loneliness and dull ache that one experiences with losing a partner .


 Colour Story

For this project it was really important for me to create a mood  that is conveyed though out the Short. therefor  I tried to focuses a lot on lighting and colour grading in my post production stage.

Set of  ED

The set of ED played an important role in the making of the short. I spend a lot of time planing the set to fit in to and convey the story. I wanted to render this short as a one shot camera movement that pans around the home in a circle like movement that to me signified the passage of time and the circle of life. As my short only featured one character doing mundane activities I knew the main plot device that will drive the story was the environment set up and and camera movement. So I focused on not only Layout but also texturing the environment itself to convey a story.


  Family Photos

As the film begins and ends on the photo of ED and his wife I wanted to convey a loving relationship between them. I also experimented with producing younger photos of them that showcases there individual personalities and how they are together
