• 'Ohina Short Film Showcase 2001


An old reclusive woman dies, and the secrets of her home are revealed.


A Rose for Emily was created for an art class in the Spring of 2001. The guidelines for this project were fairly rigid: the film had to be based on the story of a Nobel Prize-Winning author; the actual text of the story was to be used as narration; and 50% of the story had to be told with still images taken by an SLR camera.


This was one of my earliest films, and it was also the first film I submitted to a film festival. I had a hard time trying to match the color and contrast of the video and film, but I'm still happy with it.
