Boxes (Short Film)

Boxes is my short film produced at Bristol School of Animation (UWE Bristol) in 2014. The story is about a young man who cannot let go of the past. He builds a cave from boxes of problem. As the boxes grow, he finds himself in darkness. In a moment of desperation, he decides to put an end to all of that. He almost kill himself in the process but that make him reborn. He gets out of the dark and for the first time, he realises how beautiful the light is, he's surrounded by the light of hope. The film has a dark and cold atmospheric tone throughout but there's always a small light shines in each shot before the scene is completely blocked out by warm, bright colours to signal the end.
