Director's Comments

My entry to BRAWL 2019. One of the first things that struck me about the theme "trapped" was how it could be interpreted in both present and past tenses. Therefore both are explored in the film.

I also took the mod element colors (black and white) to the next level: the film was captured in full color images but the sets and characters only used black, white, and grey bricks! I think it makes for a neat effect, as opposed to applying greyscale effects in post-production (not that there's anything wrong with the latter).

Enjoy Past Tense!
