Director Statement

The film "One Last Time" is my second year (BFA2) film at CalArts! The setting is based on a creek that childhood me would go after school to play in. The place was a pocket of nature in the middle of suburban sprawl. I wanted to capture this timeless whimsical feeling, while also exploring more nuanced topics like grief.
