Sometimes Eric feels his world is a box. Literally. Having recently quit my job to pursue a more fulfilling path, I wrote my first short with the idea of telling a story in under 3 minutes for less than $300 within a single 3m² space. After building a tiny set in my living room with plywood and bottle caps, this was the result: a claustrophobic glimpse into the life of a clerk also looking for an escape.
