“Silica” peers into our relationships as our cellphones peer back at us. Chris is looking for solace from the combative text messages he’s receiving. A chance conversation with his weird neighbor, Mike, may help Chris to drop all of his problems.
Silica was shot as a one-man crew and the dialogue was completely improvised. After the story had taken shape in editing, I connected with composer Tony Scott-Green who came through and took the concept of the film to the next level with his original music. The song he cut for the trailer features bits and pieces of his score, which I feel perfectly sets the table for future audiences. Thanks for watching!
