An exploration of one man’s struggle with himself shot on 35mm motion picture film. “Dark at Sea” captures themes of frustration, defeat, and addiction to success through the movements of dancer Matthew Gibbs.
Dark at Sea started as a love letter to the ambitions and the payoffs that come with being a creative, and the sacrifices that it entails. We wanted to create something personal and abstract but that the general audience, and specially our creative community, could relate to. We were hungry and passionate to create something from a vulnerable standpoint.
Making this film reminded me that the persistence and self-afflicting nature of the human being is, however, what keeps us hungry for what’s left out there to conquer.
