My creative submission to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
I hope I get in. The chances are slim, and I know hoping doesn’t ultimately achieve anything in the real world - but sometimes I feel like hoping is all I have. It’s all I’ve ever had.

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.Elie Wiesel
My latest film!
pacific! - Runway to Elsewhere
J: So these are what those look like!
R: They look so normal. It almost seems as if they’re incapable of shutting parts of your consciousness down.
J: They are very small. Almost too small. How often do you take them?
R: About once a day. Actually, precisely once a day. Apparently these things work like pellets of caffeine so taking them at night isn’t really an ideal endeavour if you plan on sleeping whilst the moon is up.
J: One a day? That’s it?
R: What were you expecting?
J: I don’t know. Something more dramatic, I suppose. People in films never take just one tablet.
R: Well, people in films aren’t real people.
J: So if one of these things shoots your dopamine levels up, naturally a few more would give you a greater high then - right?
R: What the fuck do you think this is? Weed?
J: No, I mean - let’s say you’re feeling UBER sad one night. Like, you’ve taken your dose for the day and it hasn’t really had a remarkable effect on your demeanour. Maybe taking four, five, six of these at once would propel you to insane levels of happiness or some shit. Do you see what I’m saying here?
R: I’m depressed, not retarded.
