Reflect – An Experimental Short

Around mid January of this year, as part of my diploma course in filmmaking at FX School, I had to make a non-dialogue, non-fiction short film. I was 100% sure that for this project, I was going to take the experimental route.

Taking René Descartes‘ quote “Cogito Ergo Sum” as my inspiration, I went ahead and made this.

Chasing Inspiration

A little over a year ago, I started a diploma course in Filmmaking at FX School. As part of the course, we were asked to make a chase sequence. To be honest, the idea of a chase sequence seemed too boring to me, but then I began thinking of how I can make this interesting.

Instead of making a cat-and-mouse chase, I decided to do something different. Instead of a guy chasing a pickpocket, I thought of a writer trying to chase his inspiration. This is the result.

It’s probably my simplest film yet. Let me know what you think.

What is Death?

Synopsis:
A man sits on his grave, contemplating of another who has died twice. A mysterious manifestation touches his grave to pay respects. The man begins to trail this manifestation, hoping to answer a simple question. ‘What is Death?’

So, I know I’ve been pretty inactive these past few years. I decided to stay away from social media, and yes it was genuinely relaxing, but in today’s age it’s seemingly impossible to live without the Internet. So here I am.

This is a short film we (Ixius Films) made back in 2014. It was even screened at the Access Code Short Film Festival in 2015. We had planned to upload it back then, but life got in the way and we kept procrastinating.

It’s been almost 3 years, and we have all grown, we have all changed, yet somehow this old internal monologue that was written in a moment of inspiration still makes sense. It’s an old short film, and over the years I was working on other stuff. My book still isn’t published, but I wrote another one, which I’m editing right now. Fingers crossed.

I made a few other short films too, which I’ve decided to upload on my channel in the coming weeks. Before I upload those, I had to put up this one. Hope you like it.
