When quarantine started last year, I knew that I had to find a way to stay creative at home. I began writing a screenplay for a short film about a young woman, recently married, who is struggling with the idea of staying home all of the time with her hubby and three cats. I basically made a short film about my life, exactly - with a few magical twists in the middle!
The central theme of this film isn't that we need to reach outside into the world for stimulation, but instead that we can find value in the relationships that we have right in front of us, or at our fingertips.
I spent a few weeks writing the screenplay, editing it, and planning the pre-production logistics. Then, my husband and I filmed over 3 full days on a weekend in our home, using my iPhone and lights that I have from doing self-tape auditions.
I hope that watching this short film will bring you some laughs, entertainment, and encouragement! The music is also specially written for this short film, composed and recorded by me. There's a link to the full songs on Soundcloud in the Youtube description!
(Oh, and you'll also get to see quite a bit of live cat content!)
Shine on! And be safe!
