Floating Falling

Floating Falling is a short film about two spirits who live in a forest.  Floating, a spirit who will continue to float upward until she falls asleep and then she falls back to earth.  Falling is a dark spirit who is constantly stuck to the ground and tends to fall into pits.

The spirits are designed to depict two ways depression can manifest.  Floating describes my own depression and how it makes me feel like I have no control and will slowly float away, while Falling depicts my Significant and how he described his as a snake pit.  The final film was Released at midnight on March 14'th My significant's birthday.  

Please enjoy reading about the development.
