A Senior Thesis Project Directed by Bailey Selvidge
"GODSEND" is set in a dystopian future and carries a dark emotional theme of desperation. When Bailey and I first discussed the visual language of this film we instantly knew the look it deserved. We wanted to visually represent the feeling of hanging on by a thread.
I saw the film as an opportunity to experiment with how far you can push a gritty and dark look, while maintaining an overall feeling of contrast and visual interest. My greatest challenge was providing the film with a consistent gloomy look that still manages to compliment the near monochromatic color palette.
