MEMORY is the latest short from JCP; a story that explores the relationship between a young couple amid the natural environs of Los Angeles' Runyon Canyon.
Produced and Directed by Jonathan Chapman, the project was very loosely scripted with subtle direction give to the subjects. Edited by Nathaniel Schmidt, the visuals are presented as a non-linear narrative leaving room for interpretation by the viewer. The goal was to evoke pure natural emotion without a script. Creating a subtle story gives the viewer an interpretational meaning to take away. We aren't telling the viewer what to feel and think, rather giving them the ability to make a human connection.
