Abstract/Artist Statement

Coming into this film production class, I thought making a film was one of the easiest things anybody could do. But in this experience, I was able to see how much hard work is put into a film, whether its three minutes long or an hour long. My story was about a young couple that seemed to be each other’s soul mates in the beginning but eventually grew tired of each other. The boy had been abandoned by his mother and had issues of being left alone once again. He had been saving up all his life in order to buy an engagement ring for the love of his life. Once he bought the ring though, the girlfriend couldn’t take it anymore and broke up with him. He felt the abandonment all over again so he began stalking the girl. He was so crazy, he took out a gun and we hear a gun shot but we never know who got shot. I got the opportunity to write and direct a movie that I considered to be something fun and interesting and relatable to most people. When thinking about filming this, I knew it would be a challenge having two death scenes and nonprofessional actors, but I really wanted to create a movie that was different from other films we had seen in class. Another reason why I chose this topic was because it can relate to those who have ever fallen in love and have a fear of losing someone. We all have felt that abandonment by someone we love and we have a hard time letting him or her go, which can lead us to do things without thinking about the consequences. I hope to show the real side of a stalker’s life.
