A 48 hour film shot on the iPhone 4
I had always thought about why we are driven to do things, in my circumstance, why I create, and continue to create. Where does the motivation, the diligence, the ambition, even the obligation come from?
Is it simply death denial?
I kept coming back to the conclusion that anything and everything mankind endeavors is to deny the only thing we know for certain, our inevitable death; our expiration, and therefore we build something in the hope it will survive us. The rest is either a perk, a torment, or the ease of time’s passing.
I found myself writing on my white board and it read:
'Nothing is set in stone, for stone can be broken.'
The question of death denial interwoven with my fear of automobile accidents, reminints of an actual crash I encountered in England as a passenger, led to the pairing of these two very malleable subjects.
With just over a fortnight and an iPhone 4, my sister and I wrote, planned and shot our exploration of death denial - both visually and literally on Mt. Paran Rd., in the suburbs of Atlanta, where ambition is no stranger.
