The Most Misused Word Since Love

Ross, bereaved after the recent death of his girlfriend, encounters a graveyard groundskeeper who gives him access to a mystical machine that allows him to relive his memories with the girl he still loves.

The word, as the title references to, is 'lost' and refers to Ross, in how he uses his grieving as an escape from his own life. Ross must figure out that, just because others become lost in life, he must not lose himself, and learn to carry on.

Director Statement

This project was a lot of fun for everyone involved. For me, it was an experiment towards testing my abilities as a writer and producer. For some, it offered a chance for them to move one step closer to festival filmmaking. For others, this was their first time making a movie and first time even being on a set. It was a learning experience for all, and I wanted to include everyone -m that means professionals, virtuosos and film students looking to learn all alike.

This story strikes me on a very deep, personal level, as I wrote this to commemorate a sort of similar relationship from my past. Add in the drama, then the lighting and I guess that makes a movie. I hope anyone watching enjoys their viewing.
