I created this video after sitting on the image of a man who had been struck by a car and killed. The only part of him that went uncovered was his shoes and I was fascinated with the idea that he tied his shoes that morning not knowing it would be the last time he did that mundane routine.
I also incorporated the image of a coffee cup keeping rings to track how much you've drank, I had been wanting to put coffee rings to use in some way or another in my art and this project proved to use it well.
The overall idea of the video, without just giving it away, is how close we are to death and how everyday we go about out business as we unknowingly could be flirting with death.

-The music is "Ma Fleur" by The Cinematic Orchestra. I shot most of the footage with a 50mm 1.4 lens on a Canon Rebel t3i, with some shots done using a 18-55 lens.
