Abstract/Artist Statement

This short film stars a character named Carl, who goes to study abroad in France, only to come back to his friends who have changed since he last saw him. His friends on the other hand tell Carl that he’s the one who has actually changed. The actor who plays Carl is in fact, going to study abroad in France, and this is a topic that has been brought up many times before. This theme is especially important to me because I too, plan on studying abroad for a year in Korea. I often wonder how much I will change, and grow, and how much things will change back home, or not at all. The conclusion I came to, is that change is inevitable no matter where you go, or where you are. Change is a part of a process, movement that strays away from stagnation, and may ultimately become a part of progress in the grand scheme of things. After pitching this idea to my actors, I decided to let them decide on how they wanted the film to end, because in the end, it is up to you, yourself, to decide how much you will change, and how much it will ultimately affect you.
