Triptych is a short narrative film hovering between the drama and experimental genres. Recovering from a hangover and an unsettling dream, Maria struggles to go about her day as she gets wrapped up in a whirlwind of her own imagination. Caught in a cycle of self-isolation and neglect, she begins to lose touch with herself and the world around her. In the Fall of 2021, I decided that this would be my final submission for the FMST Capstone. Reflecting on the ups and downs of the creative process as I tried to pull off my first filmmaking project of this scale, I feel incredibly proud of my dedication to taking on the writing, direction, and editing roles on my own.
