Introducing: Evermore


Introducing Evermore is a short film about leaving the woes of the world behind to become an animated cartoon instead.

Director’s Statement

Introducing Evermore is part fantasy, part biography. It was made in a night, on no budget, with myself and my fiancee, after he asked me if I was happy with the way my career was shaping up. It’s about creativity, yearning, and the scary forces of technology that might interact with those desires. More than a few people have called this a ‘Three Minute Black Mirror Episode’ – though to me, it’s more about living with the difficulties of pursuing your passion vs. stepping out of those difficulties for less gratification but more equanimity. I wanted to leave the ending open-ended rather than provide an answer/solution to this subject, though I do think the topic doesn’t have a clear answer, and is worth discussing.
