Director Statement

This short was inspired by a class project where we recorded audio tracks with resources at our disposal, blending them together with incongruent visuals. I used the concept to put together this presentation of abstract. Apart from a general idea while filming, the structure really came together during editing where I found ways to splice the footage with the separately recorded audio tracks, and found a cover of "In My Life" to intersperse throughout in order to create a surrealist vibe.
