Each film portrays a different, eccentric ‘someone’. An outsider, in one way or another. This short is a surreal story about a struggling author who suddenly becomes the subject of her own next book. As it is set in the 1920s, the goal was to explore old-style filmmaking, so no modern effects were used in the process.
Inspired by classics such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and early Burton work, a whole set was built from hardboard and plaster in order to place the film in its own little abstract universe.
