"Ever since I saw it last June it has haunted my thoughts like almost no other film this year, short or feature... a poetic sci-fi at its very best."
- Ben Umstead, Twitchfilm.net
The abstract story about a lone survivor lost in a dying world. A man struggles to connect pieces from his daily scavenging routine and bits from his repressed memory. When a woman appears in his desolate forest world, she's intent on making him face his past and consequent fate.

We have built the rain towers ourselves, basically from painting poles, garden hoses, sprayers, and a water pump which is connected to a portable water tank.
For long-shots, we've used our long rain tower, which is built from 10 sprayers. For medium-shots, we've used a double handheld poles with 2 water sprayers each, which can move with the characters.
For the shots where we couldn't physically reach the characters with the rain towers, we have shot and used a keyed rain footage which we added later in the post.
For this we have backlitted the rain and shot it over a black background. Then at the post we were able to key out the rain from the background. And guess what? We have decided to share the footage here with you freely. Use it in your wintery projects. A nice 'thank you' in the credits will be nice though!
