The Man

A man consumed by his work life finds himself thrown into a journey that explores what’s truly inside the heart of man.

A man has become obsessed with work and climbing the corporate ladder, neglecting his wife and family in the process. One day while heading to work, he experiences a pain, a sort of glitch in his surroundings. He awakes in a remote location. A dream world. He journeys deeper into each layer, more dangerous than the last. Arriving at the final layer, he’s reminded of who he is and discovers what truly is in the heart of man.

Director Statement

“The Man” started as a project to challenge myself. I love writing, especially dialogue, so I wanted to create a piece that had minimal dialogue, and focused more on the silent journey that he takes. I wanted to take the less obvious aspects of films and bring them forefront. Music, sound effects, and lighting played a huge role. I wanted his facial expressions and his heart to show more than anything else. Created over an 8 month process, this film has given me the opportunity to grow and better myself in each area of filmmaking. I hope you enjoy, and to always remember to take a step back and remember that there’s nothing better in life than the people that love you.
