Echoes from a Silent World


Echoes from a Silent World

My entry for the Lockdown Short Film Contest by London Surf Film Festival.

The concept was simple, dive into the archives. While the world was on lockdown earlier this year, take something old and make something new from the confines of your home.

While unable to work it was creatively therapeutic to dive into old hard drives and make something fresh that reflected the dream-like​ state of isolation.

The title pays tribute to that brief moment in time where the outside world stood still in early 2020. The majority of the globe could only reminisce on what were becoming faint memories of life outside of the house as reality began to seem like a figment of our imagination.

Rather than make something that got you excited to go surf, I wanted to make something unrealistic and dreamlike, saturated with colors and details from an ocean experience.

To bring the visuals to life I teamed up with Brennan Mercer for Sound Design. His ability to create a subtle world within a world of imagery set the tone for a true visceral effect. These were the sounds of nature and the world we all longed to be a part of once again.
