    This is my Wasteland series, a 5 part film that deals with a variety of subjects and themes, such as isolation, mental illness, and the subjectivity of reality.

    Something integral to the point of this overall series is visualizing and externalizing different characters' worldviews through what visual medium is being used and how their view of the world is presented, & establishing an internal visual and aural vernacular inside the series of films that make certain subtle aspects make sense to people who are paying attention. The 5 different parts can all be viewed individually and are meant to make sense on their own, but when viewed together and in sequence bring a different and more interesting context to each of the pieces.

    I was interested in telling a cohesive emotional arc through 5 films, and though the narrative structure is unconventional, have the ideas and themes come together and create a larger point when viewed all together. Individually, each film has its own message and has its own themes, together, all the themes come together and act as stepping stones to the next theme. In the final film, The Final Exit of the Disciples of Ascensia, every emotion and thematic element comes together and is given an emotional conclusion.
