Falling Flowers

Project Overview

Falling Flowers is a story of the highs and lows of a relationship as mirrored through the life and decay of a bouquet of flowers.

This film was created from scratch in only one week by me and four other teammates. The goal of this project was to follow a full film production pipeline including ideation, storyboarding, filming, editing, and sound design all based on the given theme of love.

I came up with the concept for the film, created the storyboard/script, directed the film, and served as one of the two actors in the film!

I was very happy with the final product, especially with our motif of the bouquet of flowers.

My original storyboard for the film. The final film ended up following this original plan pretty closely!


Project Overview

In Shh, a mourning wife reflects on her time married to her husband, who has mysteriously disappeared.

This film was created from scratch in just under four weeks by me and four other teammates.

I worked on the writing, I did camerawork, I managed the props, and I worked on the lighting.

I was particularly happy with our creative shots including the shots from the body's perspective like the trunk closing and the dirt falling on top of the camera, which were my ideas. I was very proud of how this film turned out, especially since it was so different from our first film, Falling Flowers.
