  1. Memory Descent: a serene aesthetic journey.

    Derealization is an alteration in the perception or experience of the external world so that it seems unreal. This film is an attempt to recreate that feeling.

    Memory Descent follows our dancer protagonist as she plummets into the ocean depths. As she sinks, she interacts with fish and octopi, but never with a surface. Down becomes up- deep sea becomes deep space. From space, Earth’s gravity begins to pull her back toward its center. She completes her uncanny loop, rocketing through the earth’s atmosphere and into the ocean once again. In this serene aesthetic journey the viewer travels with the dancer as space seamlessly morphs and bends during oscillations between sinking and falling.

  3. Travesty City describes the disconnect between personal life and work life. How does identity transition between the two and how do we value each independently.

    A waiter fills his role with style and precision. As he leaves the restaurant and enters the streets of Travesty City, this sense of purpose and stability begins to unravel. How will he translate his sense of belonging at work into the more unstructured reality of his personal life? Will he know alternatives when he sees them?
