Director Statement

Many causes are born of the imaginations of our fictional minds. The imaginary products that eventually become defective, deficient and limitations of the human mind are intertwined in the process of harvesting different effects from the real world so that the mind can extract the desired meaning from them. It is required that, although many conceptions are based on objective narratives, all of them are subject to human mental powers.
The "Hidden" short film comes from an engaging mind and a situation associated with such limitations. A girl enthralled by a boy's interest enters the boys' dormitory and eventually her room. The inner content of the work points to the out-of-mind availability of another, which is needed to make him more aware of his minds and inferences for his conclusions. But naturally, because of the inaccessibility of the boy's mind and the need for such information, the girl acts as a way of matching her behavior with the contents of the boy's mind. Asks ...
The dormitory space of the University of the Art and the older experiences of the students from what they heard and saw in the student environment made me more curious about the subject of this film. I researched. I became interested and eventually wrote the script. In this film, I attempt to frame, in a classic narrative structure, the use of stylistic elements in presenting the content of the film, which, in a dramatic situation, reveals their personal and hidden mentality.
As the name of the film, "Hidden" refers to the same two things that are subjective and objective to many perceptions. Putting good versus good in a bad situation, if we can each look at their own position and angle.
The timing of this film is well worth the bumps in the experience of directing a short film. Dramatic challenges, utilizing dramatic techniques, attempting to create an off-frame independent narrative based on sound, and ultimately utilizing rhythmic standards relying on stylistic elements.
The "Hidden" script has been written in the direction of producing independent filmmaking with the frameworks associated with broadcasting in more private circles. Finally, given my interest in independent filmmaking, I have released all three of my produced work independently to the production stage.
