THE LIFT / SHORT FILM
 

SOMETIMES ERIC FEELS LIKE HE LIVES IN A BOX. LITERALLY. 

 

FOR MY FIRST FILM, I SET THE CHALLENGE OF MAKING IT FOR UNDER $300 WITHIN A SINGLE 3X3 METRE SPACE. I BUILT A TINY SET IN MY LIVING ROOM OUT OF PLYWOOD, WALLPAPER AND BOTTLE CAPS. FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS PLAYED THE ROLES. THE RESULT IS A CLAUSTROPHOBIC GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFE OF A CLERK LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT. DESPITE THE FILM'S MICRO-AMBITIONS, IT REMAINS MY PROUDEST WORK TO DATE.
