Beneath the Silt
The only character is dying of cancer, from smoking cigarettes, and needs water from the deepest depths of the Lenape Lake in order to be cured. The protagonist goes from a desert-like environment to the depths of this lake. Upon hitting the bottom an exploration of light and smoke transports the protagonist to a fountain in the middle of a city (Seattle). The protagonist now has a new eye (colored glass over the camera lens) to drink the world through. To further heighten the dramatic arc of the film the camera will be attached to the body in the first part of the film, then free in the middle part, and finally associated with the body again in the final part of the film. The film will be four to seven minutes long.
