THE LIFT
 

SOMETIMES ERIC FEELS LIKE HIS WORLD IS A BOX. LITERALLY. 

 

WHEN I QUIT MY JOB TO PURSUE A CAREER IN FILM, I SET MYSELF THE CHALLENGE OF MAKING A 3 MINUTE FILM FOR UNDER $300 WITHIN A SINGLE 3X3 METRE SPACE. AFTER BUILDING A TINY SET IN MY LIVING ROOM OUT OF PLYWOOD, WALLPAPER AND BOTTLE CAPS (AND GETTING FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS TO PLAY THE ROLES), THIS WAS THE RESULT: A CLAUSTROPHOBIC GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFE OF A CLERK ALSO LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT. IN SPITE OF THE FILM'S MICRO-AMBITIONS, IT REMAINS MY PROUDEST WORK TO THIS DAY.
