A young woman with unique abilities and her enigmatic care taker await a long expected call. However his agenda may divided them forever.
Strawberries is a short scene study about a young girl with unique powers and her caretaker, an enigmatic man with an unknown agenda. Set in a not too distant future, the film was designed not as a complete narrative, but rather as a glimpse into a larger story and world. With minimal dialogue, the short uses rich textures, cinematography and pacing to help convey the story.
“My goal was to create a sense of unease. Rather than telling a straightforward narrative, my focus was on bringing a sense of depth and truth to the alternate reality where the story unfolds, leaving the audience to speculate about the nature of this world, what has brought our characters into this moment, and how this scene fits into a large tale.”

This a micro short sci. Originally done as a scene study, I wanted to explore a single moment while giving the feeling of a large story at play. The project was written originally as a camera test with some visual effect ideas in play, however it grew into a larger project once more creatives were involved. I am quite pleased with the final result, though given the shifts i would of loved to pushed it further once i saw all the talent involved both infront and behind the camera. A lesson learned for the next project.
