A few sentences talking about the film:
This is a story about a fallen Martian that lands in downtown Los Angeles. Intrigued by the atmosphere, loud music, and electric energy, she roams aimlessly around the city, spurred forward by her curiosity. Along her route, she crosses paths with a girl that quickly becomes her shadow. The Martian notices but doesn't seem to mind, and the two become friends without even talking.
What made decide to shoot this particular piece? What inspired you to make this film?
I found the Martian costume at a dance discount store for $10. I didn’t know what I was going to use it for at the time, but I knew I had to buy it. An idea formed when I was randomly listening to the song, “Touch Me I’m Going to Scream" by My Morning Jacket, in my car. When I started to envision the story to the music, a message formed in my head that I wanted to get across. You can befriend someone, even if they don’t speak the same language as you.
