Director Statement I’m very intrigued by the concept of life and how people use, or indeed can waste it all away.. Life being so brief an experience it should be explored to it's fullest. So I decided to create a short which explores this theme in a greater expansion - in a world where life becomes even more precious and the risks of doing what you want can become an impossibility for many and others it becomes something taken for granted. The main character becomes a vessel for the possibilities, and a messenger to portray that life can be short and should be lived rather than just existed, watching the clock drain away.
