DROWNING (PRODUCTION DESIGN)
Director: RYAN VELASQUEZ
DROWNING is a Film Independent Project Involve short film, shot on location over four days. The story is about Diego, a boy trying to find his equilibrium in the harsh world of high school, who must find it within himself to stand up to his bully to defend the girl he loves.
CONCEPTUALLY, WE WANTED THE COLOR PALETTE TO BE WATERY BLUES AND GREENS CONTRASTED WITH WARM PEACH AND PINK FOR DIEGO'S CRUSH, AS WELL AS SETTINGS THAT SEEMED TO PRESS IN ON AND ENGULF DIEGO.
DROWNING premiered at the LA Film Festival in June 2015.
