A Senior Thesis Project Directed by Tessa Amadon
"Mother Morphine" is a narrative drama touching on subjects of drug abuse, sexual assault, and neglective parenting. When the director, Tessa Amadon, reached out to me about this project I was thrilled to shoot her story, as it inspired a wonderful visual language and offered many opportunities to challenge myself.
I aimed to achieve intimate, authentic cinematography while creating two distinct worlds: sobriety and intoxication. Shooting "Mother Morphine" demanded extensive organizational skills, and a talented crew, as it had many locations and moving parts.
