This film is the culmination of an idea I've been working with for over two years. The goal was to create a fictional narrative out of actual footage from my life. Working this way presented many creative challenges, difficulties and long-awaited solutions. Using my iPhone 4s to film most of the movie, I was able to shoot easily at any time in any place and had culminated days of footage by the time editing and plot development began. Though the footage was not scripted, directed, or pre-meditated in any way, the narrative you are about to see is a work of FICTION, made possible through rearranging actual recorded events. The characters are portrayed as such through creative narrative assembly, and in no way reflect the factual personalities of each individual.
SYNOPSIS: The film follows two college art students through a portion of their time at school. Corey, the socialite, is frequently seen partying, flirting with girls, and occasionally partaking in drug use. Zach is a diligent artist and student who is often found working alone. Throughout the development of these characters stories, a chess game across town is being played by one of their peers/colleagues, who dissects the ideology of socializing, loneliness and creativity.
