Pitchroom

United States, 2018, 10 min.

In English.

A young screenwriter uses a new simulation technology to practice his movie pitch, only to be distracted by the memories that inspired his film.

Director's Statement

This film was inspired by the contrast between reality, virtual reality, and memories. I envisioned each point on the timeline with saturated coloring and obscure shots involving movement to disorient the audience and create a sense of an alternate reality. The creative process really came to life as I drew the storyboard and made the visuals for the film. I wanted to truly decipher the two worlds of reality and the simulation in the film through color palettes, music, and the kinds of shots used.
