Empty Nest
#Motion / Client Personal Project / Credits Shot and edited by Eric Kassel. Music by Sunbeam. Sound design by Eric Kassel.

A short film created for Still Motion’s Big Shots contest. More about the contest.

Instructions: “Use the song “Honey” by Sunbeam, the theme Family, and only Ambient / Nat Sounds to create a 55 – 60 Second Film.”

I placed an additional restriction on myself: don’t shoot footage of live people. I wanted to show the family by their absence, by showing their artifacts, almost like an archaeologist. (I cheated a bit by using photographs of my family.)
