I wanted to create a short within the zombie genre focussing on isolation in order to differentiate this from more conventional zombie films. Through this theme I was able to explore current real life circumstances with covid-1 causing many to feel isolated. Additionally, concentrating on this instead of the zombies themselves allowed me to focus on creating a sombre narrative. I also aimed to tell a narrative without the use of dialogue, taking advantage of visual imagery to express the protagonist’s emotions.
The main challenge that faced me was being able to capture the tone I wanted to go for; the way I framed shots and the way the actor was directed was very important. The film also focuses on slow pacing to establish mood.
