A Brief Interview with Jordan:

Why did you decide to make this film?

I wanted to communicate ideas with very little dialogue, and I wanted to build an abstract space that mirrored my characters’ hopeless states of mind. I challenged myself to shoot on 16mm film, and I wanted to create a piece that was motivated by framing, music and mood. 

What was your favorite part about making it?

I really enjoyed conceptualizing the look of the piece, in attempting to marry its themes with its imagery. I loved editing the film as well, which really was a process of discovery and experimentation. I enjoyed working closely with my composer Katy Jarzebowski. 

What are you working on now?

I am currently in pre-production on my next film Waiting, while working as a script/story consultant for Amazon Studios and editing/producing content for Def Jam Recordings.
