About this submission

In the hyper-busy world today, it is easy to become overwhelmed and feel disconnected from one’s environment. I aimed to capture a feeling of disillusionment, where, despite living a seemingly idyllic life, my young character Casey can’t understand why she still is not happy. I wanted to create a meaningful juxtaposition of beautiful scenery and melancholy emotion, capturing Athens, Georgia in its most enchanting season while critiquing its beauty as being not without sadness. I hope this film serves as a reflective and relatable experience for audiences navigating their own moments of disconnection.
