The Human Experience

  1. Part 4 in the Human Experience Series deals with a part of our lives that likely all of us have gone through....a heart wrenching break up. Those days that follow are a disaster of emotion and pain, but we always seem to make it, we always move on. It's not about what happens to us, rather how we react to those things, how we use them to make us better.

  3. The second episode of The Human Experience series. We wanted to convey the couple's relationship in a one-shot monologue portrait to accentuate the divide and love between the two. Both subjects are speaking in a dual monologue describing the difficulties of their relationship.

    My goal was to take a very minimalistic approach by making every word and visual have purpose. I really tried to make symmetry and shot composition tell the story along with the voice over. For the ending, I especially wanted to break the symmetrical divide between the two subjects when their love supersedes all the difficulties. Enjoy!

  4. This is the first episode in a new series I am starting called the Human Experience. The idea behind the series is to capture the essence of the human condition in creative and innovative ways, while keeping the script at 3 pages or less. So you have 3 pages to try and accentuate a certain element of the human experience.

    Episode 1: Contact

    This episode is what started the entire process. I wanted to create something without being hampered by the idea of infinite pages to write an infinite story. By limiting the writer you in turn learn how creatively they can attack certain issues. This episode is about love at first site and occurs when a man who is beaten down by his day happens on a girl that could change his life.
