The Earth in the Air is a short film written by Michael Bailey and directed by Jared Hogan. I had the pleasure of shooting the project. It was an amazing opportunity to apply what I had learned from the last major project I had shot (Afterlife). After much deliberation, Jared and I decided that we would go into this with next to no equipment (a camera, a tripod, and a dolly). In the film, the main character leaves home with next to nothing, and his surroundings ultimately determine his path. I felt that the making of the film should be as close to this as possible. Due to the lack of lighting equipment, we too were then forced to let our surroundings determine our shots, and ultimately, the story.
