Director Biography - Reece Bonello

My name is Reece Bonello and I am 18 years old and a passionate film maker. I have a passion for Film, and Tv and I enjoy producing, editing and directing my own short films and other forms of creative media. I love creating stories and expressing myself throughout my own films as i find it a way of self-expression and love storytelling. Film is an amazing way to tell stories and I am very excited to see where it will take me in my future. Wherever I am, I like to get my camera out and take photos or videos of things that inspire me as there is art all around us if you look deeper. I really enjoy storytelling as I see it as a way to express myself and my inner thoughts and hope that people can connect in some way to my films.

Director Statement

This project is an idea that i have been wanting to make for a long time now and the way to include the COVID-19 pandemic was a great way to tell such a story. From the very beginning of planning this project i really wanted to make you feel as if you are with the character watching their inner struggles, 'Living in a world of scarifies with no one to turn to, how does this effect someone mentally while trying to find their purpose in this broken and empty world?'. I hope this short film showed how loneliness can affect someone and how this character could really be anyone even if you take out the apocalypse aspect. There are people who have no family or friends and have no-one in their life who they can trust and i hope this came across when people watch and people take a second to realise how everyone has their own stuff going on in their life and how we must sympathise with people and to be there for each other as the world is so uncertain at the moment.
