I Want to Kill Myself

A short film. Made Fall 2012 as part of a course at the University of Waterloo. It’s about suicide (if it wasn’t obvious from the title). I guess you can consider that a trigger warning.

The short was written entirely by me. It’s dark and there’s a bit of dark humour in it. We all (Warren, Gordon, Chelsea and me) sort of co-directed. The title should be I Want to Kill Myself; ignore what the embedded video says.

I’m really happy with how this turned out, I think we pretty much nailed my vision of the film I had when I wrote the script. All the actors we got were great too.

We shot the film on some sort of Canon DSLR (forget the specifics, it was Chelsea’s camera), with an external boom mic. The suicide video bits were recorded on a shitty camcorder, and we used the camcorder’s shitty audio, hence the noticable drop in audio and visual quality.

Also, you should really check out the other films from the course. You can find them on this channel.
