Sometimes I think about things, and sometimes I get sad.

Film Directed by: Louis Crevier (Genre: Short)

"The project explores the inner struggles of the artist, the fears, anxieties and thought patterns that, to some extent, drive their existence. The artist's voice, sporadically reciting diary-like entries, guides you through a world built as a visual representation of their emotions.
