Esprit = Life / Mortis = Death. A lonely grim reaper reluctantly carries out the duties of his office. Will he become an unlikely hero?
Inspired by the works of Piers Anthony ("On a Pale Horse") and productions such as “Dead Like Me”, “Meet Joe Black”, and even “Monty Python's the Meaning of Life”, I’ve always been fascinated with the fantasy version of Death. What would it be like to occupy the office of the Grim Reaper? What would he or she care about, or say or do in certain situations? This short film allowed me to explore this theme and try out some new camera and visual effect techniques.

“No Curtain Call” is a bonus track from the “Hands All Over” album by Maroon 5. I believe the song is about PTSD and possibly hypnosis therapy, but it also seemed to really pair well with the feel of this storyline. Link: a.co/6ElcdC5
