Right Side Down

Calvin feels like an outsider because he was born upside down, and lives his entire life upside down too. He sees an opportunity to escape to a place where there is no up or down when he signs up for a one-way solo space voyage. After he befriends his neighbor, Calvin begins to wonder if he’s found somewhere he feels he belongs.

Director Statement

We created this short film as a reflection on how we felt mid-pandemic in the summer of 2020. Feeling cut off, isolated, and like our worlds had turned upside down, we wanted to craft a story about a character who felt the same. While following Toronto's health guidelines, we were able to safely film this short over the course of two days with our talented Director of Photography, Matt Levin-Gold, help from our wonderful Production Assistant, Shaquille Griffith, and the fantastic Becky Grimman, who played Chandler. They made this film possible with their charm, hustle, and dedication.
