︎︎︎  “Clear Valley Report” - Short Film

A surreal comedy I wrote and directed, Clear Valley Report was an official selection at Palm Springs International ShortFest, Filmfest Dresden, and São Paulo International Short Film Festival, and Bowery Film Festival.  
Short Film

It’s a tale as old as time...one where a hapless bureaucrat finds himself in a starkly vacant urban landscape amidst the housing crisis and begins to descend into madness.

I used a bold and unconventional visual storytelling approach to recount the misadventure of Tom Gomm, a hapless bureaucrat who finds himself in a recently vacated world without so much as a voicemail left for his benefit. Using sharp visual contrasts and jarring tone shifts, the film frames Tom in environments of brutalist architecture to evoke a sense of alienation and is brought to life with a touch of deadpan humor.
