About this submission

IT FOLLOWS was created to highlight the often unrecognized state of Vermont and the complex backstories that rural individuals live with, told through a "modern" country perspective. Growing up together, the two creators of the project felt the environment had a natural beauty most should bear witness to. However, though the area was visually serene, the creators simultaneously found themselves feeling distanced and away from "reality," - the real world. As such, this short film aims to emphasize these feelings of duality that exist in both humanity and nature itself.

An upcoming director and writer with a love of exploring global cultures and the human experience through authentic storytelling. Growing up in a small Vermont town gave me ample time to explore many creative arts, providing me a valuable look into the everyday details that make life so intriguing and meaningful. Vast international experiences have also contributed to my sense of community and what it means to build a powerful team. I aim to inspire future audiences by focusing on culturally diverse and intriguing characters that challenge thought and humanity. I enjoy making intangible elements (entire cities, atmospheres, music...) characters in themselves and using distant settings as the backdrop for suspenseful yet beautiful stories. more...
