Film duration: 3 minutes and 13 seconds
Medium: 3D Animation Short Film
Role: Creator, Director, Rig Developer
I love when sentences are heard without context. Coming in and being stunned at a statement because it’s never what you thought it would be. It has a shock factor, it has humor. It stimulates creativity through imagination and attracts follow up questions. It draws the listeners in.
Therefore, I created the film I did. My focus was to share a story that was out of context and yet so commonplace for most of the general population. Most of us have rode in an elevator, and this simple setting can be the genesis for so much dramatic and comedic potential. It was a golden opportunity to push the boundaries of what is witnessed.
