The Drama in Illumination: “The Falling” Short Film

My final Production I project was to create a full blown short film, no longer than 8 minutes if I recall correctly.

I believe I’ve mentioned before that I have a bad habit of acting in my own movies because I never feel as though I get across my messages to actors clearly enough to achieve the movie I want. This influenced the making of this film as well. Over 2011’s Thanksgiving break, I filmed myself, and two of my best friends (both of whom featured in Spectrum as well, if you look back).

I love flashbacks, and used that as a narrative vehicle to tell my story of a near-death experience.

Okay, near-death is a bit over exaggerated…but isn’t that what film is sometimes about? The extremes? No? Yes?

I’m talking to myself again, aren’t I?

In any case, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with “The Falling” as I always do. This is one of my favorites.
