This short film was written and produced for the 2022 Digi60 Filmmakers Film Festival in Ottawa. The catch theme was “Escape,” so I based my idea off of a vivid nightmare I had about five years ago, in which I was trapped in a void space and being pulled by a divine force towards a swirling vortex of bodies that were writhing over one another.

I’m very happy with the way the film turned out, as it looks exactly as I envisioned it and very few things went wrong during principal. I did receive some good feedback and critiques from Digi60 jurors which I’ll take with me onto my next project.

To bring this project to the screen I had to step up my Blender abilities and teach myself to work with rigging characters and 3D motion tracking. I have a story about that, which I’ll try to get into later…
