It’s about a melancholic feeling of comfort inside their home. I want to show there a relatable mood where one is “trapped”, thinking of when to “escape” and do what he wants even though everything is provided and available.
As a frustated filmmaker, I want to share that short film however because of some limitations during that time, I can only make a shotlist of it and after a year later, I took the courage to scratch it off my to-do-list and these are the product. Coincidentally, the light leaks of the camera and the film’s tone I used in here gave an unexpected output— the last frame of the last roll jammed. It was a happy accident that I did not intend to do, thus enhancing my message more. It reminded me that Film Photography is such a wonderful medium to use not only because of the product but also with the unique experience during shoot.
