This short film is entered in the Doorpost Film Project where it was one of 20 Finalists. I was also nominated for “Best Art Direction” in the Detroit Independent Film Festival for this piece.

We shot over a weekend with myself (being Art Director) and two PA’s creating the sets the night before shooting. Art Department: first to arrive on set, last to leave.

My intention was to bring a muted, almost faded palette to the film, invoke a feeling of time ambiguousness, and creatively define the “Lost and Found” shop’s inventory, i.e. lost religion, childhood, love, etc.

“Working with Erika in pre-pro and on set was delightful. She utilized every available second to give us the best film possible, and offered creative ideas sparked by her attention to the story. Very resourceful, attentive to detail and a “yes” person to the last breath. A wonderful experience!
