Director Statement

Familiars tells the story of two brothers and their struggle to get along amidst their dad's imminent death. I used many methods and found myself inventing things along the way. I tried to create the feeling of nostalgia, shooting visual elements that represented a world past and the subsequent loss of that world. I worked a lot with sound and music and the interaction of these elements. This short film was a joy to make and I hope the audience finds it enjoyable.
