Beyond The Sea, Lies Water

Writer - Aaron Flinn and Riley Allen
Director - Aaron Flinn

    Beyond The Sea, Lies Water is a dramatic short film that takesplace over the course of one night during a camping trip in 2014. The filmcenters around a group of five young adults, Mark, who is a naturallyintelligent person, but most often is left observing the outside world; Taylor,who is considered an old-soul mother of the group and typically found worryingmore often than she should about her friends. Andrew has a devil-may-careattitude, considers himself to be better than all of his friends, but lacks ininhibition; Emma is one of the more shallow characters in the group, she liveslife on the edge, and is often seen balancing between two extremes. For peoplethat know her, they would say she is cavalier and lacking in empathy; andlastly there is Ryan, the boyfriend of Emma, who is more of an existential,introverted personality, and is often seen clashing with Emma. The film itselfdeals with many cultural ideals that are relevant to many young adults livingtoday, such as debauchery, hedonism, and apathy. In order to properly portraythis aesthetic Beyond The Sea, Lies Waterinfuses classic Italian Neo-Realistic style with a surrealistic aspect,like that of the late Louis Buñuel. 

            For much of the story, Beyond the Sea, LiesWater is seen comparing itself to Lordof The Flies in relation to humans becoming animalistic when they findthemselves wanting. All of the characters in the film lack in connections,whether these connections are to the outside world, themselves, or evenconnections within their own group. The lack of connections is brought on bythe selfishness that each of the characters brings to the group. Since all ofthem are selfish in their own right this makes the group function on adysfunctional base. This conflict is also brought on by the location itself,considering they are in a isolated area, without technology to shield them fromthemselves, leaving them exposed to act how the feel they should, in order tohave the group survive.

            Beyond The Sea, Lies Water at its coreis a film that explores the deepest levels of human conditions. It drudges upthe deep, dark abyss that is the soul through questions of cultural relevancy.


        For Beyond The Sea, Lies Water to be recieved in the manner we would like for it to be, we are needing to raise funds to pay for a crew from Esoteric Bunker Productions, equipment rentals i.e., Lighting, a generator since we will be shooting outside for a vast majority of the film, underwater camera housing, and sound equipment; a cast from Magna Casting Agency, an original score for the film, and food and housing for the cast & crew (the housing will be tents, not trailers.)
