Project Main Details

Breathing Underwater 
This is a short film project for use on my directors reel and will be posted on my website. The film has voice over of a poem and I'm looking for someone who can do an old man's weathered, contemplative sounding voice. This is sort of an end of life moment, looking back at his life.

Script Details

I built my house by the sea. Not on the sands, mind you; not on the shifting sand. And I built it of rock. A strong house by a strong sea.
And we got well acquainted, the sea and I. Good neighbors. Not that we spoke much. But we met in silences. Respectful, keeping our
distance, but looking our thoughts
across the fence of sand. Always,
the fence of sand our barrier,
always, the sand between.
And then one day, -and I
still don’t know how it happened-
the sea came. Without warning.
And I thought of flight and
I thought of drowning and I
thought of death.
And while I thought, the sea
crept higher ’till it reached my
door. And I knew then, there was
neither flight, nor death, nor
That when the sea comes calling you
stop being neighbors.
Well acquainted,
friendly-at-a- distance, neighbors.
And you give your house for a coral
castle, And you learn to breathe
under water.
