Places Other People Have Lived
director, writer, animator
An experimental, mixed-media documentary film about the way our lives inhabit our spaces, and the ghosts we leave behind there. It was my MFA graduation film for the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts' Division of Animation & Digital Arts. It was filmed on location at my family home of 25 years, in the final months before its sale to a new buyer.
