Forgotten

I am currently taking a class in motion picture. It has been really fun for me to switch gears a bit from stills to motion. And now that there are pro-grade cameras out that will do both amazingly well I see this as a viable part of my future. Here is my first personal project shot solely on the 5d Mark II. The imagery in this short film, both stills and video, was captured almost entirely within an abandoned farm house in Kansas. I stumbled onto it when driving through the country with my dad. I was immediately struck with a strange feeling while walking through the remnants of lives that seemingly just disappeared there. The feeling was partly mysterious and curious and partly sad. Many things were still in tact and there were definitely signs of family life (children's books, toys, Christmas ornaments, dolls, trophies, books, an old TV in what was once the living room, etc.). It was really quite an amazing place and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it, but I couldn't help but to document it. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you are in some way moved.
