These spaces came to hold very special connections and memories for me furthering appreciation and interest in the power of architecture. I am a high school student (16 years old) majoring in a film program and wanted to create a film focusing on the subtle power of ephemeral light within a home space. For me, this light holds special warmth and sense of belonging both inward and extending to the gardens. The film celebrates natural light and pairs it with the warmth of the fire. It was shot in one afternoon, making it an interesting challenge to capture as much light and scope as possible, which created an natural arc of the aging light moving through the living spaces.

Director Biography - Tilley Aga Thom

I'm Tilley, a student filmmaker and multi-medium artist based in Toronto, Canada. At the moment, realism and narrative film bordering on documentary holds my focus. My recent work has oriented around themes of family dynamics and narratives, thresholds, and embracement of the journey as opposed to the destination.
