The Rose [48hr]

The DV Challenge: Memories Theme

My first film competition video. I wanted to see how much emotion I could convey without any dialogue. This is my throwback to the silent-film era. For this competition themed “memories”, I landed on a concept of an old man (played by yours truly while the camera was on a tripod) patiently growing a very special rose in commemoration of his 50th wedding anniversary. It is intentionally slow-paced in order to force the viewer to really consider how long life can be when missing someone you love.

Please enjoy my first short story.
