Missed Connection

Production /

After one girl drops her phone in the toilet, she must work to get it back on so she doesn’t lose the connection of a lifetime.

Director’s Statement

I made this to heighten the idea that we put so much pressure on obtaining a potential partner and as a result when we find one, it’s almost always a let down. It’s almost more about the chase, not of a specific person, but of setting a certain goal to get something for yourself. I also wanted to tell a story that felt acted, but included no actors, or elements other than sound and image, and was under a minute. I paired risograph prints with synth and digital key tone based sound design to give it a sort of 80’s feel, which I wanted to contribute to the action vibe of being on a mission.
