Project: Izzy’s Demons
This film Izzy’s Demons is the thesis project for my tenure at USC. The film explores how anxiety can corrupts ones memory and re-contextualize ones relationships even with the closest people to you. Izzy as a character has lost touch with her best friend and has forgotten how close they’ve been because her anxiety/false narrative is describing the relationship as a farce.
My goal is to make a character driven film that explores complex emotions in a simplistic fashion. I wanted to touch on shame, isolation and re-connection. The Inspiration for this film was my move from New York to Pittsburgh, the separation anxiety I felt from leaving the only place I’ve ever lived, and the forced Isolation I placed myself in when I first arrived in LA.
