My Cinema Capstone project – the last thing I had to make for my undergrad. Shot with Canon HDSLRs (T2i & 60D) and a variety of lenses.
As for the story, I once again picked a genre which I know very little about and decided to work in it. I need to stop doing that.
This time I played it straight. No parody. No satire. No illusions. Just plain sincerity.
There is supposed to be an undercurrent of impending tragedy, but I don’t think it came through very well. Or at all. But that is my fault rather than the actors’.
This is sort of a companion story to the music video of “Conversation 16” by the National which I shot with my Cinematography and Lighting class around the same time. This is the happy getting together story while that is the sad break-up story.
