Cerulean teardrops stain the postcard he imagines her knotting a helium balloon to and sending up to him, past the dusty moon. Certainly though, it would not survive the void that enveloped him. Certainly, it would be lost before even breaking Earth’s atmosphere. Cold realities like these send chills through his bones and yet he imagines to himself, for there is no one else to imagine to, that she smiles, hopeful, as her message voyages upward.
Chills again as he remembers the improbability of its survival and the even greater improbability of her wanting to send anything at all.
Looking for an excuse to write, I stumbled across the 100 Word Challenge for Grown-Ups at Julia’s Place. Flash-fiction, in particular, is something I am very interested in currently, and I will, no doubt, continue to enter this and other such challenges. This week’s 100 Word Challenge, challenged writers to begin each line in their story with the letter ‘C’.

This is the link to the finished film on YouTube. I think the YouTube compression messed with the video a little so if possible, it looks better on a higher resolution, best on HD.

It was difficult to come up with a script for a ‘silent’ film. Though my intention for the final film will have no dialogue, and therefore need no script, a basic story is being told. The film follows the day to day struggles of a new college student, coming to terms with the massive change that comes with heading away, leaving home, and venturing to college. He feels alone, he feels overworked, and most of all, he longs to be back with people he is comfortable with, happy with, and shared good times with. Throughout the film, there are time jumps,; it is apparent that some time is passing and this is not taking place over the course of a day. All throughout this experience, as he tries to keep up with his work and manage his school life, he is always thinking about the good memories he made and kept, and longs for them to return.
