How Heavy Is Water (2019)
This film is my first collaborative effort outside of group film assignments throughout my time at Lesley. I first heard writer Nick LeBlanc recite this poem at Gallery X in New Bedford, MA, and through the subsequent butt-rock and twee indie pop performances of the night, I was still thinking about this poem and seeing the compositions in my noggin. In the car ride home, I messaged Nick on Instagram and was stoked to see he would also like to collaborate and turn this piece into an animated film.
How Heavy Is Water was shown at Weird Local Film Festival in March 2020, and I've been featured alongside LeBlanc on episode #11 of the Boston Open Screen podcast discussing this film.
