I recently teamed up with a few of my best friends to create this short film for my application to film school. This is my first attempt at directing a film and I really loved the process so much. I learned a lot about storytelling. I was present to how exciting and challenging it can be to bring out emotion using imagery and very little dialog.
I was so grateful to use 'Breathe Me' by Sia in this film. She is one of my most favorite artists and when I saw on the YouTube audio library it was available I knew I had to use it. 'Breathe Me' was the first song I ever heard by Sia and it got me through one of the darkest parts of my addiction. I hope she doesn't mind me using it here.

When single, I have often encountered partners or friends or people who I was interested in who led me on and entertained my company without disclosing their honest intentions right away. Sometimes they would be in relationships and kept it hidden for a while until they couldn't any more. I was always so disappointed and sad when I would find out. A part of me understands why they would do that. I too have been in a relationship and was attracted at the newness and flirtation of a new acquaintance. Especially if my relationship was in a downturn or going through a rough patch. This film is just a glimpse into those emotions and that process.
