Depression in the elderly is often overlooked and left untreated. This short was inspired by my grandmother's behavior after my grandfather's passing. Without her beloved, my grandmother fell into a state of depression. And when no one was watching, she'd attempt to speed up the wait leading up to their reunion.
All characters were fabricated from Sculpy and shot in stop-motion with the help of Dragon (my first time!) Produced with the kind support of the Matt Groening Initiative at UCLA's School of Theater Film and Television.
